Course Description:
This course is designed to orient freshmen and recent transfers who are immigrant students to the University of California at Berkeley in an intimate learning atmosphere.  Its goals include: identifying campus resources that will facilitate the transition of entering and continuing students, and forming a supportive immigrant community at Cal.  Through the exploration of resources on campus for immigrant students, student will develop an awareness of the academic support programs, career planning, and student life programs available at Cal.  In addition, students will be engaged in discussions on relevant issues that immigrants face at the university level.  This course will also further engage in discussion of the most current legislative campaign of the DreamAct with respect to AB540 students.  Students are expected to work in collaboration with a program or organization that serves the immigrant community for a class project.  At the end of the course, students should be able to orient themselves on campus, discover what areas need to be implemented in order to better serve the needs of the immigrant population, and to create a program that would be able to be carried out in the future.
