Undocumented Student Support Services Training

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 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.
