Undocumented Community Support Coalition

Undocumented Community Support Coalition (UCSC)

The Undocumented Community Support Coalition is a group of various campus partners coming together to work towards improving how Gonzaga supports undocumented community members. In addition to supporting the wellbeing of undocumented people, UCSC recognizes that the effects of immigration reform impacts others beyond their immigration status. In this, UCSC’s support extends both undocumented Gonzaga community members in addition to community member who have friends and family members impacted by immigration.

The Undocumented Community Support Coalition serves as a catalyst and clearinghouse for campus efforts:

  • to support the Gonzaga undocumented community influenced by U.S. immigration and deportation policies and to provide staff, faculty and students resources to extend effective support,

  • to educate the campus community about the effects of U.S. immigration and deportation policies,

  • to offer perspective on Gonzaga’s institutional policy related to those influenced by U.S. immigration and deportation policies and

  • to invite campus advocacy in support of those influenced by U.S. immigration and deportation policies.

Central to these efforts is Gonzaga’s belief in the inherent dignity of all human persons, with particular attention for those vulnerable and marginalized by society at large. As such, the establishment of avenues of communication and trust with the undocumented members of our community forms a critical element of our work.
