Undocumented college students in the United States face many obstacles as a function of their immigration status. This article considers the organizational and administrative practices associated with the work of campus diversity administrators (CDOs) in contributing to the educational experiences of undocumented college students. Recent scholarship has emphasized that campus administrators possess the capacity to act as institutional agents to influence how campuses respond to and support marginalized students. Our article presents an argument that begins to draw connections between substantive inclusive organizational action and everyday administrative routines. We conclude by offering a set of propositions that hold promise for how CDOs can engage in work routines that advance the cause of inclusion for undocumented students.
