As many colleges in our Achieving the Dream network work with thousands of their students, faculty, and staff who may be affected by the President’s Executive Orders to deny entrance to America from specific countries, we state our commitment to those institutions and individuals to uphold our principle of providing access to a high-quality education in an inclusive environment. We believe strongly that an inclusive environment is the right of all individuals and imperative for the continued advancement of a strong democracy and workforce.
We have put together tools and information that our college presidents and their leadership teams can use as they develop ways for responding to shifts in immigration or DACA policy in their local communities. These resources also include handouts, Power Point presentations, and background materials shared or referenced by immigration experts at DREAM in February 2017.
ATD will continue to help by adding resources and providing information as we find it to help you keep abreast of the ever changing policy landscape.
