Message to DACA Students

31 August 2017

As you surely know, some news reports are suggesting there may be forthcoming action by the federal government regarding the DACA program. We therefore wanted to reach out to you during what may be a particularly anxious time. We want to reassure you that Carleton’s support for you continues.

All of the commitments we made to continue supporting our DACA students absolutely remain in full force and effect. We have been actively working with students to support the renewal of DACA registration status–and we will continue to do so. We will also be updating our DACA resource website.

We cannot predict how the political winds will affect this critical and successful program, but we can promise that Carleton will be among the ardent voices articulating support for the continuation of DACA (There was one such communication earlier this week.).

If you have needs or concerns related to your DACA status, please contact Dean Livingston.

All the best for a great start to the new academic year!

Carolyn H. Livingston, Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students
Steve Poskanzer, President
Bev Nagel, Dean of the College
