Our Mission

The Dream Resource Center seeks to serve undocumented, LGBTQ+ and housing/food insecure students with information and resources.  These resources are intended to promote college access, persistence, completion and transfer by creating a safe and supportive environment, building leadership skills, promoting equity as well as civic and community engagement.

We seek to promote an inclusive campus culture that empowers our students to achieve their academic and personal pursuits and become active members of our communities.

We believe that students deserve the right to learn, be healthy and pursue their dreams regardless of personal circumstances; such as: gender, immigration status, sexual orientation, and race etc.


FERPA

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children’s education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the education records. When a student turns 18 years old, or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, the rights under FERPA transfer from the parents to the student (“eligible student”). 

This U.S. federal law also gives students 18 years of age or older, or students of any age if enrolled in any post-secondary educational institution, the right of privacy regarding grades, enrollment, and even billing information unless the school has specific permission from the student to share that specific type of information. 


Safe Zone

safe zoneSafe Zone is a community of educators who will be understanding, supportive, and trustworthy if undocumented and LGBTQIA+ people who need help, advice, or just someone to talk to. The Safe Zone community will not tolerate homophobic, heterosexist, cisgenderism comments and actions but will address them in an educational and informative and manner.

West Los Angeles College celebrates diversity in people, philosophies, cultures, beliefs, programs and learning environments." The Safe Zone Program is an extension of this value. Therefore, the Safe Zone Network is a group of community college members who are committed to addressing issues of importance and safety to the undocumented and LGBTQIA +(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer, Intersex, Agender, Asexual and other queer identifying communities) through education and advocacy.
