In Support of DACA

In Support of DACA

It’s been said that you can “touch the world” at FAU, and we take great pride in the fact that students from more than 180 countries have attended our university. With that in mind, I recently added my name to the growing list of higher education leaders who are standing with President David Oxtoby of Pomona College in defending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Since 2012, DACA has helped more than 741,000 young people whose families came to this country seeking a better life.

More than 400 of my colleagues nationwide have signed President Oxtoby’s letter in support of DACA, including the presidents of FIU, Florida State, Miami Dade College, USF, UCF, Miami and UF, as well as Harvard, Princeton and Yale.

The environment of diversity and inclusion that we have cultivated across our six campuses is one of the most unique and wonderful things about FAU. We stand together in celebration of our differences and we value every member of our faculty, staff and student body. On behalf of the entire FAU family, I am proud to support DACA.
