Taskforce on Undocumented Members of the On-campus Community


To identify and articulate the issues and needs for undocumented members of the UC Berkeley on-campus community, with particular emphasis on undergraduate students, and make recommendations for campus intiatives to support them in best achieving their goals here, while recognizing legal strictures. Strategies include:

  • Assessment of financial resources and gaps for undocumented students
  • Assessment of campus climate for undocumented students
  • Evaluation of campus services, including their accessibility and effectiveness
  • Compilation and assessment of relevant campus policies
  • Recommendations to the Chancellor for key policy and service changes
  • Insuring ongoing implementation and monitoring of key policy and service changes
  • increasing collaboration with outside private entities that can help with these issues

The Taskforce convened in the fall 2010 semester. It met approximately once per month. A report was issued to the Chancellor in spring 2011. The Taskforce was staffed by the Division of Equity & Inclusion.
