University Launches New Website for Undocumented and DACA Students

April 26, 2018

In the continuing effort to cultivating a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment on campus, the University of Michigan has launched a new website, undocumented.umich.edu, to serve as a supportive resource for undocumented and DACA students.

“We hope that the website reinforces the university’s commitment to welcoming students of all ethnicities and nationalities, and help them find a safe and supportive community at the University of Michigan,” says Hector Galvan, Program Manager for the Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives.

Earlier this year, Robert Sellers, Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer, appointed Galvan to serve as a point-of-contact for DACA students who enter the institution and would benefit from ongoing support and guidance throughout their journey at the University of Michigan.

The website features four core components – supportive services, community support, external funding, and parent information – and aims to provide undocumented and DACA students with a support network of current support staff and other undocumented and DACA students allies at the University of Michigan.
