Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
Our purpose is to increase access, retention, and graduation rates for DREAMer students. We do this through educating the campus community, offering resources for students, faculty, and staff, influencing university policy to create more equity for DREAMer students, working as a support network for students and advocates, and increasing funding for students.

Initially develop by United We Dream and adopted for MSU in 2015, this interactive 5-hour training educates faculty & staff about undocumented students in our communities and on our campus. We have trained over 700 faculty, staff, and student staff since 2014!
Hear directly from staff and DACA/undocumented students and actively
develop support for Metro’s DREAMer students! Improve educational access in Colorado! Trainings are usually held once during the fall and once during the spring semester.

This committee reviews existing scholarships and develops new scholarship opportunities for DACA & undocumented students. Its presentations have helped raise awareness in the Denver Metropolitan Community about Dreamer student challenges and need for additional scholarship funding. Our presentations have helped increase donations to the Access Annual Scholarship and the Dreamer Emergency Fund. One donor who initially learned about MSU Denver’s efforts on behalf of undocumented students at a Dreamer Network presentation, established the Helen Grace Fenhaus Endowed Scholarship.
The Dreamer Network supports MSU Denver’s Advancement Office with annual fundraising efforts by sharing student stories, creating promotional materials, and assisting with donor outreach.
For example, the scholarship committee has developed and given presentations to houses of worship, resulting in over $15,694 donated to scholarships & DACA renewal funds! A fundraiser at a restaurant raised almost $4,000 in one night!
To join the committee, please contact Prof. Catherine Curran, [email protected].
This committee develops regular trainings for faculty, staff, and student staff on rights and responsibilities afforded to all people within the geopolitical boundaries of the United States of America as written in the Constitution, in order to increase awareness and develop advocacy practices to support our undocumented and DACA status students, as well as folks with additional marginalized identities.
