A team of UConn students across various majors has completed a documentary film entitled “Locked Out: American Dream in Jeopardy.” The documentary tells the story of the undocumented immigrant community in Connecticut and the activists who are helping them adjust to life and navigate the legal system to find a path to citizenship.

The University of Connecticut strives to perpetuate an environment in which all students have the necessary resources and opportunities to be successful academically, socially, and professionally regardless of their citizenship status. Our mission is to ensure that undocumented individuals have the support and reassurance of being able to pursue their goals of higher education; from the admissions process to navigating through campus.

We are here to help you!
