As counselors, teachers, administrators, and community members, supporting the college dreams of undocumented and DACAmented students can be a convoluted and confusing process.The conference goal is to provide a safe and open space for educators and professionals who advise students in their postsecondary opportunities. 


This one-day, comprehensive conference attempts to address many questions and uncertainties in providing services to these students. 

  • What are the best practices and options for advising undocumented and DACA status students who are applying to college, specifically in Colorado?
  • Where is the information I can trust in regard to scholarship opportunities and specific student pathways?
  • What are the most current laws that impact the students I am advising?
  • What are institutions of higher education doing to best serve students with DACA status?

It is the committee's hope that this event will engender an ongoing dialogue for those in counseling, teaching, advising, and pre-collegiate professions to best serve all students.
