The Share the DREAM Undocumented Student Ally Trainings began in 2012 with the introduction of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) referendum presented by President Barack Obama. The trainings were successfully offered through a collaboration by the Department of Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs (SDMA) and the Center for Urban Research and Learning (CURL). These trainings are modeled after UndocuPeers: Liberating Campus Climate training developed by United We Dream’s (UWD), the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation. To date, over 300 faculty, staff, and students have completed the Share the Dream trainings as part of a University-wide effort to support undocumented students.
The Share the DREAM Undocumented Student Ally Trainings provide the Loyola community with skills to understand the value and importance of exploring the experiences and perspectives of undocumented students; they aim to generate knowledge for self-learning; and they increase on-campus support for and the inclusion of undocumented students. 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.
Trainings are held several times a year and are open to faculty, staff, and students. It is important that trainees commit to the entire two hours in order to receive all of the information they need in order to support this community.
Below is a list of people who have completed the training since the 2015-2016 academic year and the departments they represent.
