Resources for Undocumented Studentsnew window
Montgomery College is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, including undocumented students. Undocumented students, who often face barriers and challenges as they navigate campus policies, require support services that address their unique needs. The College provides extra support for students who need help navigating the requirements of the Maryland Dream Act and DACA.
Racial equity and social justice are what we strive to achieve in Montgomery County. The Government Alliance on Racial Equity (GARE) defines racial equity as “when race can no longer be used to predict life outcomes and outcomes for all groups are improved.” Racial equity and social justice are urgent moral and socioeconomic endeavors for our community. Our county’s population has changed, both in numbers and in diversity, and this did not happen overnight. Addressing issues of racial equity is not only an ethical obligation; it is essential to ensure the continued economic vitality of our community.

Montgomery County community members and organizations are encouraged to host community (PDF, ) conversations on racial equity with their friends, neighbors and colleagues and to report their findings back using a survey tool. These structured conversations can take place in homes, community centers, houses of worship, coffee shops, parks or any place you feel comfortable. Some guiding questions for the conversation include:
Why does racial equity matter?
Are you impacted by racial inequity?
What changes do you want to see to promote racial equity and social justice?
