Undocumented Student Action Week, 10/18 - 10/22

SBCC is participating in a variety of ways but most importantly by working hard to open our new Dream Center which will be located in the Campus Center (inside of the Center for Equity and Social Justice). We are in the process of furnishing the new space and look forward to recruiting a new Dream Center Student Program Advisor as soon as possible. If you would like to visit the new space, please email me at rmbyrne@sbcc.edu and I will be happy to give you a tour!  
 
The CESJ will also be hosting several activities to commemorate this week and show our support for undocumented students so please be on the lookout for our student centered email and stop by to participate this Tuesday 1-6, Wednesday 10-4 or Thursday 10-4.
 
Additionally, the Chancellor's office has provided a variety of webinars and prerecorded sessions for you to learn more about how you can become an UndocuAlly.  Please read on for more information:
