Resources for DACA Students

This is a public page with resources for all students in the US, with and without documentation.

As a compassionate community dedicated to our core values of truth, loyalty, and service—values that affirm the inherent dignity of each member of our community, asking us to honor, respect, and serve every person - we affirm the following:

  • We will continue to engage in passionate but constructive dialogue, maintain our commitment to academic freedom and the freedom of speech, and hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards of truth, loyalty, and service to each other;
  • We will continue to support the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program (DACA), and as part of this commitment to our students regardless of their immigration status, we joined other institutions in the “Statement in Support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program and our Undocumented Immigrant Students”; and
  • We will continue to strengthen our support of every community member in preserving the freedoms that would otherwise be threatened by discrimination based on race, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, political affiliation, disability, and religion.
