The California Community Colleges Dreamers Project, supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation, was created in response to the 2017 announcement of the rescission of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. A collaborative effort between the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO), Immigrants Rising, and the Foundation for California Community Colleges (Foundation), the project laid the groundwork for a longer-term effort to meet the needs of undocumented students. The project included a landscape analysis undertaken through a comprehensive online survey of community colleges and four regional meetings, as well as guidance from an Advisory Group and a final report submitted to the CCCCO with recommendations and promising practices.
