The Undocumented Graduate: A Symposium Hosted by the Undocumented Research Cohort
January 29 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Research by undocumented students on undocumented students
The Undocumented Research Cohort (URC) set out to better understand the undocumented experience at Cal. Drawing on in-depth interviews with undocumented students, we present their diverse experiences at the University, focusing specifically on the differences between those who at DACAmented and unDACAmented, as well as STEM and non-STEM. While we await immigration reform, URC provides recommendations to improve the undocumented student experience at UC Berkeley.
Keynote by Dr. Roberto Gonzales
