Statement from Vermont State Colleges on DACA

September 6, 2017

Statement from Vermont State Colleges System Chancellor Jeb Spaulding on today’s decision regarding the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“The Vermont State Colleges System joins colleges and universities around the country in support of the fundamentals of the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program. It has opened doors of opportunity for hundreds of thousands of young people and made our country stronger. We stand firmly with the Dreamers, many of whom are pursuing their college degrees so they can build a bright future for themselves, their families, and their communities. We implore the President and Congress to reach agreement so that those who are DACA-eligible will be able to remain and participate fully in our communities and on our college campuses. The diversity that immigrants and foreign students bring to our colleges strengthens the learning experience for all our students and will be good for our country’s future.”
