What We Believe
The Center for DREAMers empowers DACAmented students to achieve their higher education goals in Wisconsin through access to culturally responsive legal representation, social services, and educational and career services.
What We Do
The Center provides services through a holistic and intersectional approach such as legal, educational, mental, and social services, and career resources to the DACA community in Wisconsin through presentations and community outreach as well as support through culturally responsive training.
Our vision is to be the most trusted resource center
for DACAmented students in Wisconsin.
The Mexico International Study Opportunity for Learning (MISOL) program will provide a study abroad opportunity for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) beneficiaries to attend an education program at the UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico) in Mexico City.
MISOL is housed in the Center for DREAMers & The UW-Madison Division of Continuing Studies, in partnership with UNAM.

The Center for DREAMers at the University of Wisconsin–Madison occupies the stolen ancestral land of the Ho-Chunk people. As part of history, we acknowledge that this place currently known as Madison was once Teejop (day-JOPE) by its original name.
As first settlers of this land, the Ho-Chunk people have faced turbulence through ongoing attempts of forced removal by colonizers at the federal and state levels. The Center for DREAMers serves the state of Wisconsin and therefore respects the sovereignty of all twelve First Nations.
Most importantly, the Center for DREAMers acknowledges the resilience of those who have and continue to face displacement. We recognize a direct connection between the displacement of Indigenous peoples in the U.S and the migration of immigrants and refugees as a result of global colonial practices. Immigration and migration have direct ties to history and legacy. We must educate ourselves on this past that continues to have long-lasting effects on Indigenous communities so we can better support them as well as the immigrant community through our present and into our future.
