Description: Join us for a panel discussion focused on exploring the experience of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students, as well as students who may have family members with an undocumented status. Panelists will explore the frequently asked questions document provided by OSU, discuss current uncertainty around federal policy affecting DACA recipients, as well as ways to help support undocumented students or students with undocumented family members. The panelists will provide their experiences working with students on these issues, to better support others who are working with impacted students. This program is open for members of the OSU community and any students with impacted families or friends.
