Student Involvement Opportunities

Undocumented Student Advisory Board

We invite you to apply to be part of the Undocumented Student Advisory Board (USAB). As a student board member, you'll have the opportunity to work with undocumented and mixed-status students and allies who support our work. Our goal is to improve educational outcomes for all students, regardless of immigration status.

Student board members commit to serving for one academic year and are expected to attend one meeting a month. They also make recommendations about our office's programming initiatives. 

Spaces are limited. If you're interested in serving on the USAB, please fill out the interest form by March 11, 2022.
