The Office of Student Success and Engagement is offering virtual UndocuAlly workshops this semester on becoming an ally for undocumented college students brought to the U.S. as children. They are open to all faculty, staff and students at Texas A&M University-San Antonio.
The office hosted its first one, led by an official UndocuAlly staff member, on Zoom, Sept. 20.
Future sessions will be from 10 a.m.-noon on Oct. 14, 1-3 p.m on Nov. 16 and 10 a.m-noon on Dec. 9.
The UndocuAlly workshop will help faculty, staff and students understand the issues that Dreamers face at the university and teach attendees to be inclusive. They will learn practical skills and become an official Dreamers ally, said Kimberley Nañez, executive director for student success and engagement.
Hugo Cantero, academic success coach, said Student Success has “many resources” when it comes to the Dreamers population on campus.
“It’s strongly important that our Dreamer students have the support and allyship they need at A&M-San Antonio,” Cantero said.
