In alignment with the UO mission statement and values, our mission is to foster the unique gifts and talents of Dreamer students and promote their sense of belonging and safety, as they pursue their higher education goals. We use the term “Dreamers” to refer to Undocumented, DACA-mented, Tuition Equity, and students of mixed status families. .
The goals of our working group include:
- Raise faculty, staff, and student awareness of the experiences, challenges and assets of undocumented students across all units of campus that might be involved directly or indirectly with Dreamers;
- Promote the safety, well-being and success of Dreamers;
- Maintain the integrity needs for the confidentiality and identity of Dreamers.
There are approximately 11 million undocumented residents in the US. Among them are students in our colleges and universities. Our commitment at the UO is to support those among us who desire an education to better their lives, that of their families and communities.
We value the passions, aspirations, individuality, and success of the students, faculty, and staff who work and learn here.
We value academic freedom, creative expression, and intellectual discourse.
We value our diversity and seek to foster equity and inclusion in a welcoming, safe, and respectful community.
We value the unique geography, history and culture of Oregon that shapes our identity and spirit.
We value our shared charge to steward resources sustainably and responsibly Source: https://uoregon.edu/our-mission
