Modeled after UndocuALLY training at other institutions of higher education, this training was created to educate the USF community on the history, relevant legislation, and current realities of the undocumented community. This training strives to cultivate a more supportive environment for undocumented students in higher education and the University of South Florida.
The vision of the UndocuALLY Training program is to foster an atmosphere of support and inclusivity for Undocumented individuals within the University of South Florida community.
The mission of the UndocuALLY Training program at the University of South Florida is to identify, educate, and support allies. Allies are individuals within the USF community who consider themselves to be open and knowledgeable about Undocumented issues and who choose to provide support, as well as advocate with those who are Undocumented.
What is UndocuALLY Training?
UndocuALLY Training is a free three-hour interactive certification on the Undocumented student experience, federal and state policies and how to be an ally. Upon completion of the training, you will receive a certificate that can be added to your co-curricular transcript.
What is an ally?
Allies are individuals within the USF community who are supportive of and knowledgeable about the Undocumented student experience and issues and who want to be a visible support for people of all statuses. People of all identities are welcome to become an UndocuALLY! An UndocuALLY is represented by the displayed UndocuALLY Symbol.

- You gain a deeper understanding of the realities and experiences of Undocumented individuals
- You will become more conscious of the language used to identify the Undocumented community, thus fostering inclusive spaces
