Annual DREAM Conference
at San Joaquin Delta College
San Joaquin Delta College’s (Delta) DREAM Conference is scheduled for Saturday, January 27, 2018. Check-in begins at 8:00 a.m. at the DeRicco Student Services Building. The event will be from 8:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
The keynote speaker, Bianca Duenas, Esq., Equal Justice Works Fellow, is sponsored by the Ottinger Foundation and works for the California Rural Legal Assistance Foundation (CRLAF). CRLAF partnered with Delta’s Office of Student Equity and Diversity to provide free legal counsel to students. Ms. Duenas will share her incredible journey and accomplishments as an undocumented student who persevered to become an attorney and give back to the community.
Delta’s academic advisor, Marc Anaya looks forward to another successful event. “We want the community to know that Delta not only welcomes all students, we are committed to sharing information and providing support so everyone has an equitable chance to succeed." This year’s conference will focus on informing students and their families about their legal rights, educational opportunities available at Delta College, community resources, and best practices and information for supporters and allies.
In addition to an inspirational keynote address, participants will interact with various representatives from Delta College Student Services departments and community organizations. Delta students will be informed about Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs, transfer, and financial aid opportunities. Prospective students will receive information about admissions, financial aid, resources and academic programs.
