Student Community of Progressive Empowerment (SCOPE)

Student Community of Progressive Empowerment (SCOPE) is a student organization that strives to support and serve undocumented and DACAmented (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) students at the University of Michigan. SCOPE provides an opportunity for undocumented students to connect with one another, build peer relationships, and work together to navigate their college experience.

HISTORY

In 2017, SCOPE was founded by a group of undocumented/DACAmented undergraduate students looking to support and empower undocumented students on campus as well as individuals in immigrant communities. 

Since the start of SCOPE, students have looked to advocate, raise awareness, and garner support from the community about the lack of access undocumented students have upon entering the University. 

SCOPE has developed a presence on the University of Michigan’s campus. Students over the years continue to work toward impacting change of the University’s in-state tuition policy, gathering support through “I Stand with Immigrants” days of action, advocating for federal policy changes during different presidencies, and ultimately, increasing support to all undocumented and DACAmented students across the campus.

We look forward to connecting with you. “Like” us on Facebook to keep up with SCOPE!
