MiraCosta College works to make sure all students feel welcomed and have the tools
they need to succeed, regardless of immigration status. UPRISE strives to make sure
undocumented, DACAmented, and mix-status students at MiraCosta College feel safe and
supported by providing access to immigration legal services, offering academic and
mental health counseling, and connecting students to financial and academic resources.
MiraCosta College will not release any personally identifiable student information, including any data related to immigration status, without a judicial warrant, subpoena or court order, unless authorized by the student or required by law.
- Establish a university-wide network of easily visible allies that can provide support, information, and assistance to undocumented students.
- Provide undocumented students comfortable access to trustworthy, knowledgeable, and sensitive people who can provide a safe and nondiscriminatory environment.
- Educate members of the educational community on the needs and concerns of AB 540 and other undocumented students.
