OVIS Advocacy and Support
OVIS offers general support for undocumented students at Dartmouth, including DACA students and CoFIRED (the Dartmouth Coalition for Immigration Reform, Equality and DREAMers). CoFIRED is a Dartmouth College student organization dedicated to advancing the rights of undocumented students.
DACA students may contact OVIS by email, phone, or schedule an individual appointment. OVIS provides referrals to outside counsel for students interested in an individual consultation to review possible options for immigration benefits, including DACA and DACA renewals. OVIS also serves as the primary point of contact for departments and professional schools with questions related to undocumented students.
OVIS hosts annual information sessions for senior administrators across Dartmouth to ensure awareness and understanding of the issues faced by undocumented students. Through these meetings OVIS has created a network of individuals on campus who can be of assistance to students in their respective areas.
