There is still time to register for Evergreen’s UndocuAlly Training, organized by our staff and faculty colleagues with the Latinx Standing Committee/Undocumented Student Task Force. The 3-hour UndocuAlly training, presented by Nacho Alarcón, is a great opportunity for all our campus community. As stated in the June LSC/USTF letter to our community, “We call on our colleagues and allies throughout the College to consider how you can advocate for our undocumented and DACA students at Evergreen and create a more inclusive environment within and outside the classroom.”
We hope to see many of you in this Zoom space! Please register at the link below with the password provided.

August 31, 1-4 pm
This UndocuAlly session, open to all Evergreen staff and faculty, is an interactive virtual training to equip participants with awareness, knowledge, and skills for supporting Undocumented students. The training will be a 3-hour Zoom session with 4 sections: 1) Legal Landscape, 2) Access & Support Landscape, 3) Mental Health & Navigational Experiences, and 4) an interactive panel to synthesize learning and dig deep together.
The intended learning outcomes for each area are as follows: 1) increased knowledge of the historical and current immigration legal landscape and its effects on Undocumented college students, 2) increased familiarity with the laws/policies/practices/resources that impact Undocumented students at Evergreen, 3) increased aptitude with and commitment to use immigrant-sensitive language, 4) individualized reflection on knowledge, awareness, and skills to commit to dig deep for our Undocumented students.
Faculty will be compensated at Summer Institute rates for attending this half-day training. This workshop fulfills the June 2017 MOU requirement for the annual mandatory training for faculty professional development in inclusive excellence, culturally relevant pedagogy, and cultural competence. Given that this is a half-day event, however, we encourage participants to deepen their understanding through additional equity workshops and learning opportunities
