Undocumented or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities are likely to present different needs and face multiple barriers to success in their educational pursuits. This ultimately affects not only those students and their families but your entire campus. In today’s complicated landscape, colleges and universities must understand and support the nuanced needs of undocumented and DACA students.

Please join Joe Saucedo as he helps you to identify who undocumented/DACA students are, what unique experiences they may bring to campus, and how we can better identify and serve their specific needs. This session is designed for higher education administrators and faculty seeking to learn about the unique needs of undocumented/DACA students and desire practical strategies to support their goals. Additionally, this training will provide guidance on designing curriculum to cultivate allyship across your institution.

Your conference leader for “Inclusive Practices to Support Undocumented/DACA Students in Higher Education” is Joe Saucedo. Joe is responsible for providing oversight and leadership of a department tasked with multicultural education, mentorship, and affirmation of students from historically underserved communities including first-generation, students of color, LGBTQIA, and undocumented students. During his time at Loyola University Chicago, Joe has developed expertise in cultural competency training and development for students, staff, and faculty. He has also led efforts to integrate a strengths-based approach to mentoring students and cultivating classroom and co-curricular spaces where marginalized students can be successful. Since 2015, Joe has served on Loyola’s institution-wide Dreamer Committee advising the university president on policies and practices necessary to effectively meet the needs of undocumented students. He facilitates the Share the Dream Undocumented Student Ally training designed to equip students, staff, and faculty with greater fluency around issues affecting undocumented immigrants and families.

Joe earned his BS in marketing at Georgetown University and an MEd in student affairs from the University of California-Los Angeles. Prior to making the leap into higher education, Joe spent several years in multicultural advertising and serving clients ranging from tourism, mass transit, and Hispanic food products. He has over ten years of experience engaged in college access, admissions, residence life, and student retention. Since 2011, Joe has remained active in NASPA – Student Affairs Professionals in Higher Education – serving the Midwest Region and the Latinx/a/o Knowledge Community.
