Harper College Resources

This is a program based on United We Dream’s Undocupeers Initiative and tailored for Harper College. Our Mission is to:

  • EDUCATE the Harper community on the history, policies, and current challenges impacting students with vulnerable immigration status, to
  • PROMOTE a supportive and inclusive educational environment for Harper students regardless of immigration status,
  • CREATE a network of campus-wide Undocupeers (allies) that will serve as support for students with vulnerable immigration status,
  • ADVOCATE for policies and resources to improve the educational experience, retention, and graduation rates of students with vulnerable immigration status at Harper College.

Undocuboards have been established around campus. These bulletin boards are designed to showcase resources for undocumented students. Currently there is “takeaway” literature for scholarships specifically for undocumented students as well as information on current legislation.

Building A: 2nd floor, next to the elevator down the hall from the Registrar's Office
Building A: 3rd floor, across from A364
Building L: 2nd floor near the entrance that connects to Avanté
Building D: 1st floor near D158
Building D: 2nd floor near D255C

F.A.U.N.D.S. stands to promote justice by defending and advancing the rights of our students through student led systemic advocacy and community education.
