The Dreamers Working Group is comprised of faculty, staff, and students at the University of Oregon, who are dedicated to promote an Undocu-friendly environment and improve the experiences of Dreamers students at our institution. Our mission is to foster the unique gifts and talents of Dreamer students at the UO and to 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:
- Raising 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;
- Promoting the safety, well-being and success of Dreamers;
- Maintaining the integrity needs for the confidentiality and identity of Dreamers.
There are approximately 11 million undocumented residents in the United States. 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.

The Steering Committee works collaboratively with the UO community and Dreamer Allies to ensure that our campus is: inclusive, friendly and supportive to students, faculty, and staff irrespective of their immigration status, country of origin or ethnicity.
