Undocu Ally Training


Leadership Without Borders (LWB), founded on 2014 by staff at the Kelly Ethnic Cultural Center, is dedicated to work with our campus and at large community to build a comprehensive pathway for undocumented students’ access and success at our university and beyond. As part of this work, LWB established the Undocu Ally Training & Education program to provide staff and faculty at the UW-Seattle campus with resources, information, and guidance on how to be an ally to undocumented students.

All training presentations and materials have been created by current and former students from the University of Washington that identify as undocumented. They share with us personal experiences of struggle and triumph, as well as, academic research.

*This training will not make you a subject-matter expert, but it is guided to educate, empower and initiate important dialogue around services and support for undocumented students across campus.
