  • Institutional Tool Kits for Immigration Action

    Immigration matters are increasingly urgent on college campuses across the country. Taken together, first and second-generation immigrant students, undocumented students, and international students constitute approximately thirty percent of the undergraduate population nationally. These populations are the future demographics of higher education, and crucial to our institutional viability and financial sustainability. It is critical that we listen to the student voices on our campuses and remain student-centered in our support. We need tool kits to develop more comprehensive support networks, play a more proactive role in immigration matters on multiple levels, and better leverage the power of personal stories and data.

While the DAPA program was never enacted due to legal challenges from several states that ended with a deadlocked decision from the Supreme Court last summer, the removal of the policy by DHS with no indication of other methods to grant protections to parents of U.S. Citizens is disheartening.

    Clarissa Valencia was born and raised in northeast Los Angeles, and resides in Alhambra, CA. She discovered her love for student affairs and spirituality while majoring in the Study of Religion at UCLA. From there, she attended Cal Poly SLO, where she researched the Muslim student experience, and completed a Masters in Counseling and Guidance for Higher Education. She also interned at USC’s Office of Religious Life where she focused her efforts on implementing workshops for discovering meaning and purpose in careers. She began her professional career at Southwestern Law School followed by Mount Saint Mary’s University’s in Los Angeles. She is currently focusing on bridging the gap between the inner lives of college students who identify as “spiritual but not religious” and their outer lives at universities. Her goal is to help all Light workers, metaphysical believers, Star Seeds, crystal experts, energy healers, law of attraction creators, and unchurched spiritual followers in college strengthen their spiritual voice.
