Supporting Undocumented Students 

Serving the largest number of undocumented students in the state, California Community Colleges are committed to serving ALL students, regardless of immigration status. In its 4th year, Undocumented Student Action Week, October 19-23, 2020, is a system-wide campaign to advocate and provide support resources for our undocumented student population. During the week, California’s community colleges are encouraged to engage in advocacy and support efforts in solidarity with undocumented students throughout the state.

Undocumented Student Action Week (USAW) is a statewide effort led by the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO), the Community College League of California (League), the Foundation for California Community Colleges (FoundationCCC), Immigrants Rising, California Student Aid Commission (CSAC), the California Undocumented Higher Education Coalition, Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC), and the Student Senate for California Community Colleges (SSCCC). Action Week Partners have developed a toolkit to support colleges with virtual events throughout the week.
