  2. Global Ambassadors: programming needs of our Global Ambassador leadership development program,
  3. DACA Students: subsidize DACA students with their $575 filing fees for UCSC Form I-131: Application for Travel Documents

Your Support is greatly appreciated!!
More details will be available on the Giving Tuesday 2022 website. For now, please plan to support the equity, diversity and inclusion goals of our college as started by our former and beloved Dean, Dr. Ruth Huard.
