At the Undocu-Falcons Center, we are dedicated to empowering undocumented students, students from mixed-status families, and allies. Our mission is to provide unwavering support and essential resources, fostering an inclusive campus that actively embraces and supports all students, regardless of their immigration status.
Our vision is to cultivate a college campus that celebrates diversity and inclusivity, where every student feels valued and supported, irrespective of their immigration status. We aim to nurture an environment of understanding, empathy, and respect, championing the rights and dreams of undocumented students, those from mixed-status families, refugees, asylum-seekers, immigrant communities, and allies.
Through collaborative efforts, we strive to establish a safe and empowering space that breaks down barriers, promotes educational access, and provides the resources necessary for all students to thrive academically and personally. Together, we envision a future where every individual has equal opportunities to succeed and contribute positively to our campus and society.
