We work to foster a safe and healthy campus community. Our participation in a survey on issues of sexual assault and campus climate is one of the ways we assess our progress, and work to understand issues that require additional commitments.
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.
Pomona College is committed to providing a safe and nondiscriminatory educational, working and residential environment for all. We must aspire to provide members of our community with an environment that is free from sexual violence.
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 Earlier this morning we learned that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has been rescinded and will wind down over the next six months.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.
