DACA and Undocumented Students: Our Confidential Allies Are Here to Listen to Your Concerns and Provide Guidance

Announcement


Where do I get financial assistance to continue school?

What are my legal rights?

Could I be deported?

According to Perry Greene, vice president for diversity and inclusion, these are just a few of the questions he and Adelphi’s DACA, International and Immigration Task Force hear from students. “The anxiety experienced about being deported is quite real,” he noted.

To allay fears and provide students with the resources they need, Adelphi faculty and staff have volunteered to be part of a new team called Confidential Allies. These trained, trustworthy members of our community are here to:

  • To provide support and be an advocate for members of the Adelphi community who seek out such assistance, particularly those students impacted by recent developments such as the Trump administration’s rescission of DACA and expansion of the travel ban.
  • To be a source of information to the general Adelphi community and more specifically to those who seek such information, including available resources that would be helpful/useful in addressing their concerns and needs.

All conversations with our Confidential Allies are anonymous; however, the University is required to report issues that require disclosure due to Title IX, legal or health issues.
