Making UCR Work for Students

UC Stands with DACA


Dear UC Riverside Campus Community,
In less than five weeks, UC will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to find that the Trump Administration acted unlawfully when it abruptly ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. This fight matters: Nearly 700,000 young people are counting on all of us to help them stay in the country they call home.  As we’ve done since day one, we will continue to fight but we need your help – will you sign our pledge?

Please Pledge Your Support:


As the coordinator of Undocumented Student Programs at UC Riverside, my team and I work with DACA recipients, students from mixed-status families and undocu allies every day to ensure that our students have the support necessary to successfully complete their education. DACA has provided undocumented students the opportunity to live, work and study in our communities.

Thank you for all that you do to support UC. We hope you continue to stand with us in this important fight.

Our staff of educational professionals combines a unique and diverse blend of backgrounds and experiences, but we all have one thing in common: An abiding passion for encouraging college students to thrive while providing the resources for academic and personal success. If you have any questions, encounter any challenges, or think we can help in any way, please don't hesitate to email us at

Our office is near the Bell Tower on the third floor of the Highlander Union Building (HUB 381). We're happy that you found us. And we can't wait to make your UCR student experience as supportive and culturally enriching as possible.

Many Resources, One Aim

The Office of the AVC/Dean of Students is comprised of various departments with multiple initiatives and support programs united by one common goal: To provide you with the most enriching UCR student experience possible.

Here for You, Always

Student Affairs is here to support you throughout the campus closure.
