La Bienvenida (WSU Pullman)

La Bienvenida is a Spanish-language orientation program for new WSU Pullman students and their parents. Click here to learn more about La Bienvenida or email undocumented@wsu.edu.

Mariposas Poderosas (WSU Pullman)

Mariposas Poderosas is a weekly program at WSU Pullman that begins in the fall semester and continues throughout the year. The program uses a workbook created by the WSU Psychology Department and Undocumented Initiatives to help students learn the meaning and value of three pillars of resilience: hope for the future, emotional openness, and social support. Through this program, students will evaluate and build on their resiliency skills.

We also provide training to institutions that want to bring Mariposas Poderosas to their campus. Learn more about training opportunities.

Mariposas Creative Care (WSU Pullman)

Mariposas Creative Care is a weekly creative workshop at WSU Pullman. The workshops promote self-care, self-discovery, empowerment, resiliency, and creativity. Activities in this safe social space include: study tables, art tables, board games, movie socials, family dinners, weekend community service, and more. This is a drop-in/drop-out program that students can access whenever they need, whether they are undocumented, in the undocumented community, or an ally.

Free Weekly Consultations (WSU System)

In partnership with the University of Idaho Immigration Law Clinic, we provide weekly free immigration consultations. The consultations assist students with concerns such as:

• How marriage will affect their or their spouse’s status
• Any other issues that a student wishes to discuss

For questions, email undocumented@wsu.edu or email Geoffrey Heeren at gheeren@uidaho.edu.
