Texas Tech University

Dream Resource Center

Welcome

The Dream Resource Center's (DRC) aims to educate, support, and advocate for undocumented students with or without Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), also known as “Dreamers”. In addition, the DRC works collaboratively across Texas Tech University and the Lubbock community to support students throughout their university experience. This includes educating on student rights and educational law & policy at the university, state, and federal level. The DRC offers dedicated space on campus for students, faculty, and staff to seek out understanding, legal advice, mental-health and wellness support, and/or a connection to other university resources that promote student success. 

As more information becomes available, this dedicated space will serve as a hub for information related to serving Dreamers.
