Empowering Undocumented Students, Mixed-Status Families to Meet Their Education and Career Goals

Our Undocumented Student Center is a welcoming and supportive space. We offer nurturing guidance and resources to help empower undocumented students and mixed-status families to meet their higher education and career goals. At the same time, the Center strives to educate our campus community about the needs of undocumented youth and their families through our UndocuAlly trainings for faculty, staff and students.

About Us

The Undocumented Student Center was privately funded by the California Campus Catalyst Fund. The Catalyst Fund is a grant focused on higher education opportunities and resources for undocumented students. These grants were provided to two-year and four-year institutions throughout the state. The Catalyst Fund is a partnership between Immigrants Rising and Sierra College.

Currently, the Undocumented Student Center is funded by the state of California via AB 1645 (Blanca Rubio) Student Support Services: Dreamer Resource Liaisons Bill funding.

In December 2020, the “Exemplary Program Award for Equitable Practices in a Virtual Educational Environment” was awarded to Sierra College by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges.
