Helping our colleges support all students.

The California Community Colleges Dreamers Project aims to help the Chancellor’s Office and the 114 California Community Colleges effectively respond to recent changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The project works to understand the impacts of these changes on DACA program participants and other undocumented students, collectively referred to as Dreamers. The project will:

  • initiate a collaborative planning process and establish an advisory group that enables nimble responses to the evolving needs of Dreamer students given recent changes to and uncertainties about DACA policies.
  • share promising practices and emerging resources that help colleges better serve Dreamer students.

The project seeks to lay the groundwork for a longer-term program to implement strategies that will meet undocumented students’ needs for personal safety, legal, financial, and other assistance that will help them remain in school. The advisory group will assess college priorities and serve as a repository for tracking changes in DACA policies, emerging resources, and promising practices. The project is made possible with funding from The James Irvine Foundation.
