    • Summary

      What are the challenges of working with undocumented students? How can your team work with competencies to provide support to this student population?

      As social, political, and systemic changes affect student populations, undocumented student groups are also affected. Recognizing that career centers are actively striving to increase their visibility on campuses and serve as globally minded leaders, and are called to assist and leverage the strengths of those entering the work force, it is essential to develop tailored competencies for supporting undocumented student populations. This webinar will use state-based data, professional experience, and collaboration with a community-led organization to provide participants with tangible and replicable strategies for demonstrating inclusiveness and understanding the distinct challenges currently experienced by this student population.

      Following this program, you will be able to:

      • Gain understanding of the distinct experiences and challenges of undocumented and DACAmented students, including addressing the myths often associated with this population;
      • Develop insight into five career-focused competencies for providing consistent and inclusive support to undocumented and DACAmented students; and
      • Assess from professionals how they strive to balance advocacy and inclusiveness with navigating a higher education landscape.
