What does it mean to be an undocumented student?

Undocumented students are immigrants who have either entered the United States without official inspection or have overstayed their visa. They represent a variety of ethnicities, nationalities, genders, sexual identities, abilities, classes, religions, and experiences. Undocumented students may have lived in the United States for a significant portion of their lives and identify as Americans. Most importantly, they arrive at college with the same motivation and dreams as any other student.

Our Mission: 

To create an empowering, inclusive, equitable, and supportive culture for undocumented students at Washington State University and beyond.

What we do to help:

  • Provide undocumented students with excellent services and resources that support their academic, professional, and leadership development.
  • Partner with other institutions in higher education, school districts, and community organizations to share best practices to support undocumented students.
  • Train faculty and staff at WSU, as well as educators from other institutions, to create access and increase support for undocumented students across the entire educational pipeline. 
  • Engage the campus and broader community through a variety of events and initiatives to generate dialogue, increase awareness, and build empathy with and for undocumented students and other immigrant and refugee communities.

The Crimson Group and Undocumented Initiatives' event "Crimson for a Cause" fundraiser was held on October 24th, 2019. The event was a huge success, bringing together our community in support of undocumented students. Most importantly, around $10,000 was raised. Because of that money raised, we have been able to create the DACA Renewal Reimbursement fund and an Emergency Assistance fund.
