One U Thriving


Dream Center

Implemented August 2016

The Dream Center at the University of Utah works holistically with undocumented students and their families from college access to graduation. The Dream Center (1) engages in specialized college outreach and access strategies, (2) provides individualized mentoring and scholarship support for current and future University of Utah undocumented students, (3) promotes campus-wide advocacy and trainings for University of Utah students, faculty, staff and administration, and (4) increases community-wide awareness of policies affecting current and future University of Utah undocumented students.

July 2019

The Dream Center moved reporting from the Office of Engagement to the Office of Undergraduate Studies’ Office for Diversity & Inclusion.

March 2020

Starting in Spring 2020, the Dream Center started a dual report to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and the Office of Undergraduate Studies.

August 2020

The Dream Center moved to a new location in the A. Ray Olpin Union Building. In a more central location on campus, the center hopes to expand their collaborations with campus partners and continue being a community space for students of mixed-status, their families, and their allies.
