Mylene Foo, Stacy Nojima, Flor Lopez, and Raul Amaya represented Skyline College on April 11, 2017 at in a meeting with College of San Mateo and Cañada College’s Dream Centers to share the continued work and development of support services for AB540, DACA, Dreamers, and undocumented students across the district.

The intention behind the collaboration of SMCCD Dream Centers is to share resources and identify needs that extend beyond our schools and across the district. The Dream Center at Skyline College had the opportunity to highlight their approach to supporting students and community members.

The Dream Center Task Force also implemented a student focus group on April 19, 2017, in an effort to identify the needs of the Skyline College students and receive input on the services and strategies that students would like to see. With the collaboration of those involved in the Task Force, the voices of Skyline College students and the SMCCD Dream Center’s Collaboration, Skyline College will continue to strive to create equitable learning for all students regardless of immigration status. The next SMCCD Dream Center Collaboration meeting is scheduled for early May and will take place at Skyline College.
