Rutgers University recently debuted a program to teach students and staff about the illegal immigrant community, and at least one administrator wants to make the workshop mandatory.

The “DREAM Zone” program, a three-hour interactive event that originated at New York University, expanded to Rutgers in April, according to The Daily Targum.

During the program, students and faculty were taught various topics pertaining to the illegal immigrant community, including the history of migration to the U.S. and legislation that impacts Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) students.

Yuriana Garcia Tellez, the senior program coordinator of undocumented student services at Rutgers, showed a film about undocumented NYU students and their struggle to afford college, telling the Targum that the purpose was to humanize illegal immigrants so that participants can better empathize with them.
