DACA: Joint Statement from UI Shared Governance
At its core, the University of Iowa is its people: students, staff, and faculty guided by the values of community, inclusion, and respect. The University of Iowa strives to create a safe and welcoming environment for all students. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program allowed individuals who came to the United States as children to pursue their post-secondary education. As students, staff, and faculty of the University of Iowa, we reaffirm our commitment to ensuring all students have equal opportunity to pursue their education in our community. We stand with students impacted by the termination of DACA, and we are dedicated to providing them with our support.
