 DREAM Network Workshop: Transferring Beyond Columbus State

Global Diversity and Inclusion will host a DREAM Network workshop about transferring beyond Columbus State to a 4-year University on Wednesday, November 19, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. in the Library Media Studio room 111. During the workshop, The Ohio State University, Ohio University, Miami University and Capital University will be represented in a casual panel style presentation as well as a short college table fair.

The DREAM Network supports students who are undocumented, have DACA status, or are interested in immigration reform. The program offers a great place for students to get information about immigration policies, connect with others, and hear from helpful campus and community members. This is the final workshop that will be held until Spring Semester.
