KSUnite breakout session on immigration
Submitted by KSUnite Planning Team
As part of KSUnite: Moving Forward Together on Wednesday, Nov. 6, "Student Stories: Opportunities and Challenges of U.S. Immigration" will be presented in two sessions.
Part one will provide a brief overview of our immigration system and brief introduction to immigration statuses of our student body — undocumented, DACA-mented, refugees, asylum-seekers. Student panelists will share their experiences — and those of their family — and effect on their college experience.
For part two, our panelists and professionals in the areas of student counseling, international migration patterns and immigration law will reinforce our understanding of the current climate. We will discuss opportunities for engagement, collaborations and ways to continue the mobilization on our campus and community in support of these students. Including resources available to undocumented and DACA-mented students via K-State's DreamZone efforts.
