The Dream Center at California State University, Chico strives to support our Chico community members who are undocumented or come from mixed-status families. The Center aims to serve our students, faculty, staff, and community members by providing financial aid resources, health and wellness assistance, and academic guidance. The Center also provides tools for advocacy and trainings on issues regarding immigration. These services are possible thanks to collaborating with various campus departments. Our mission is to empower students to ensure retention and success through equal access to education, guidance, and a sense of belonging.

The Center is committed to advocating for undocumented students and students with mixed status families to pursue the dream of higher education. The Center will continue to uphold Chico State’s values of diversity and inclusion by welcoming all.
