Welcome Supreme Court Victory for DACA Students' Rights

June 22, 2020

Dear Students and Colleagues,

DACA students are respected members of the Drexel community, and we are gratified that the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday, June 18, turned away a legal bid to dismantle the program covering the 650,000 individuals known as "dreamers."

I have long stood in strong support of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, along with more than 450 college and university presidents. Undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children deserve to continue their education and work here without fear of deportation. The DACA program is a sensible and humane solution to a difficult problem.

Drexel is proud to support DACA students on our campus and on campuses across the country. Our International Students and Scholars Services team is available to work with faculty, professional staff and students to ensure DACA students continue to study here and graduate. Students can e-mail ISSS staff directly with questions or concerns at
