Video: Creating Safe Spaces for Undocumented Students on Campus

The Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs Office at Loyola University Chicago , partnering with the Ignatian Solidarity Network, have shared a video presentation from their “Undocumented Students Ally Trainings” program. This video focuses on skills to understand the value and importance of exploring the experiences and perspectives of undocumented students. The training session aims to generate knowledge for self-learning and to increase on-campus support for undocumented students.

At Loyola University Chicago, upon completing the training, trainees receive a placard that recognizes them as allies and as points of support for undocumented students on campus. The goal is that participants display these placards in their work area to invite questions and/or dialogue about the issues that impact this community.  For more information, see the blog post from Ignatian Solidarity Network.
