Resources for Dreamers
Message of Support
The University of Texas at Arlington is committed to creating a welcoming environment where all students can thrive and focus on accomplishing their academic goals. As Mavericks, our diverse campus provides a rich university experience where students can explore, learn and support one another. Our staff and faculty are invested in each individual student and are available to help you navigate challenges or obstacles on your academic journey. If there is anything you need, we are here to help.
This website was developed to provide a central place to connect students with resources related to DACA in addition to providing our campus community with important information impacting our DACA and undocumented students. Our hope is to provide a support network for you to ensure all Mavericks can succeed.

Current State of DACA
On June, 18, 2020, the Supreme Court ruled the administration could not proceed with the plan to discontinue the DACA program.
How We Help Students
Your success is dependent upon creating a campus community where all students feel they are welcome, safe, and that they belong at UTA. We are dedicating resources to educate and train faculty, staff, and students on how to effectively support our Dreamers so they may be successful during their time at UTA and beyond.
The Dreamers Council includes faculty and staff from around campus who will be trained advocates and create a support network for students. Dreamers Council Members can be contacted directly by students, staff, and faculty to answer questions and provide support for students.
Programs and Events
The Dreamers Council will recommend workshops, programs and events to be available for students throughout the year. Programs will be posted on the Multicultural Affairs website. While campus is on limited operations, all Dreamers events will be hosted virtually.
