Mission

DREAM Action NIU is a student-led organization working in collaboration with the Latino Resource Center. Our organization aims to increase awareness about the situations undocumented students face in the U.S. and particularly on our campus. Our members share the belief that higher education is a fundamental human right for all, regardless of citizenship status.

As an organization, we understand the multiple obstacles undocumented students face, and therefore we strive to develop strategies to ensure that these students are able to attain higher levels of education and academic success. We also aim to provide accurate information to the university so that it is better equipped to serve this population.
