To provide accurate and effective support to our undocumented students and students from mixed-status families it is important that CSUSM student service providers have an understanding of the challenges undocumented students and their families may face, and a familiarity with the resources available to address those challenges. The CSUSM Undocumented Student Support Services training addresses this need by offering a 90 minute workshop tailored specifically for our students, our campus, and our region.
As a result of participating in this training, attendees will be able to adequately assess the needs of undocumented students, or students from mixed status families, to allow them to identify appropriate campus and/or community resources to address those needs in a culturally sensitive manner.
