2017 CUNY DREAMers

4th Annual Conference 

CUNY DREAMers invites you to participate in the 4th Annual Conference on Saturday, December 9, 2017, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM. This year’s conference theme is, “The Future Begins Today,” focuses on our strengths, capabilities and continued resiliency in the pursuit of a more inclusive higher education system. Our mission is to bring together undocumented immigrants and supporters from across New York State to present ideas, solutions, and resources to fortify the bonds within our community. Together, we will boldly face all obstacles in front of us with unity.

What to Expect?


With fascinating content and networking opportunities, this conference is essential for those seeking information about financial, academic and professional support in order to successfully obtain higher education, as well as navigating life after college. This conference primarily focuses on undocumented students, however, we will also provide allies with the skills to work with undocumented students, professional techniques from people with years of experience and external resources to build trustworthy relationships. Supporters will learn of the CUNY-wide resources created in order to build a community and network with educators who are leading quality research to advance the lives of immigrants.


Overall You Will Experience the breadth of resources available to immigrants and supporters, as well as a fantastic opportunity to network with people who are driving positive change in the immigrant movement.  This year we will also discuss in depth the current state of immigration in New York. 2017 is the time our voices need to be heard louder than ever. The national immigrant rhetoric is divided. We must speak in concert with one another as a community in order to bring change swiftly.
