August 5, 2021: UMN Leaders Express Support for DACA Recipients

Rachel T.A. Croson (Executive Vice President and Provost) and several other university administrators sent an email to the campus community today in support of DACA recipients. It stated, in part:

DACA recipients and undocumented individuals are valued members of our University community, and we must not let this ruling minimize their positive impact and tremendous success. We urge our nation’s leaders to work together on compassionate and informed policies that will protect our students and their families, and keep the promise of opportunity for all.

DACA recipients and immigrants in the UMN community are encouraged to email [email protected] if you wish to discuss your situation. We are available to answer your questions and connect you to resources. You can also consider applying for the Dream Fund, the Immigration Response Team's donor-supported fund that provides emergency grants to individuals impacted by immigration changes.
