The Support Dreamers at UTSA fund helps support workshops for students, comprehensive Ally training for faculty and staff, as well as on-campus employment, internships, and other programmatic initiatives. Housed under the Multicultural Student Center for Equity and Justice, the DRC has lead successful advocacy and social justice events such as National Immigrants Day, Amplifying Black Immigrant Voices, and Know Your Rights training.
This year, the Dreamers Resource Center (DRC) marks five years of serving undocumented students at UTSA through education, support, and advocacy.
During the 2022-2023 academic year, the DRC has trained over 100 campus allies and is serving almost 500 undocumented students, most of which study within the Klesse College of Engineering and Integrated Design, the Alvarez College of Business, or the College of Health, Community, and Policy.
“As a full-time student who is striving to get a bachelor of Science in Architecture degree, and is struggling financially, this aid is helpful in relieving stress and providing peace of mind in the upcoming semester before I successfully graduate in the Spring of 2023. I feel extremely encouraged and motivated to continue pursuing my education, and I am very thankful for all the support the donors provide.”
