Leadership Without Borders


Leadership Without Borders provides Undocu Ally training and additional resources for UW faculty and staff as well as for other institutions of higher education and school districts to develop a better understanding of how they can build more supportive environments for undocumented students.


Leadership Without Borders (LWB), founded on 2014, is dedicated to build a comprehensive pathway for undocumented students’ access and success at the University of Washington and beyond. As part of this work, the LWB Office established the Undocu Ally Training & Education program to provide UW faculty and staff, as well as other institutions of higher education and school districts, with resources and best practices to build a supportive environment for undocumented students.

  • Why and how to be an ally to undocumented students.
  • Strategies and models to support undocumented students.
  • Recommendations for how to personalize and adapt best practices.
