UO Dreamers Support
The University of Oregon is committed to supporting all of its students irrespective of nationality, legal status, religion etc. ALL students are encouraged to actively seek support services listed here and elsewhere on campus. We especially want to encourage our Undocumented and DACA students to connect with a staff or faculty member for guidance, academic, and social support. Remember, when interacting with faculty, staff, and offices around campus you are never required to reveal your status.
Contact Justine Carpenter, Director of Multicultural and Identity-Based Services. Justine is the point of contact for Undocumented students at the UO. She can help you find legal resources, scholarships, opportunities and more!
