Private UndocuAlly Training Series

Interested in bringing the UndocuAlly Training series to your office/department or organization? We can help!

Several offices, departments and organizations at Cal Poly have benefited from having sessions with their colleagues because it offers an opportunity to discuss with one another how to create an UndocuFriendly office/department/organization.

Check out our impact page on how to get involved. 

If you are interested in having a private training but are not part of the Cal Poly community, we recommend getting in contact with the Central Coast Coalition for Undocumented Student Success for support. 

If you are a high school teacher, hoping to bring information about undocumented student support in higher education, please get in contact with the Cal Poly Dream Center.
