Earlier this year, the College sought proposals for the newly created Presidential Challenge Grants. Today it is my great pleasure to announce the result of this year’s selection process.
I write to you with a heavy heart and great concern. Earlier this morning we learned that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has been rescinded and will wind down over the next six months.
Threats to this vital program place nearly 800,000 beneficiaries of DACA at risk. We are asking you, as college and university presidents, to call on our country’s leaders to protect these young people and institute a legislative solution.
