Undocumented Student Ally Program 

Faculty and Staff on campus can choose to take part in our ally program to serve as allies to undocumented students on campus. The program offers three levels of training so that individuals can choose how involved they want to be and how much in depth knowledge they want. Students are able to identify allies by looking for "keys" posted around offices.
