As the director of Undocumented Student Resources, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our website.
Over the years, Northeastern has made significant progress in eliminating barriers for undocumented students, and it is important to highlight the activism of the founders of the Undocumented, Resilient, and Organized (URO) student club, which was the catalyst for the creation of visible systems of support for undocumented students across the University.
With the creation of the Undocumented Student Resources, we strive to continue addressing the concerns, needs and development of our undocumented students, and the faculty and staff who work with them on a daily basis. We do this by providing students with one-on-one life advising, connecting students with University and external resources, providing purposeful programing, training our faculty and staff, connecting with community based organizations and immigration experts, establishing connections with high schools and community colleges, and sharing our best practices with other institutions of higher education.
While you may find answers to many of your questions as you tour our website, I encourage you to visit me at the Angelina Pedroso Center for Diversity and Intercultural Affairs. To arrange an in-person or telephone conversation, call me at (773) 442-4601 or email me at Lu-Moreno@neiu.edu
