DACA

UWest acknowledges the recent DACA announcement is very difficult and frightening for our DACA students, their families, and friends. We have compiled this page of resources to provide our community with links on quick information and assistance. Do not hesitate in reaching out to any member of our community for assistance.  We are in this together.

UWest President’s Message

“I want to reassure all UWest students, faculty, and staff of our university’s affirming and inclusive principles. I am proud to be a member of this learning community, where we encourage, embrace, support, and celebrate one of the most diverse communities in American higher education, a community constantly striving to strengthen our character, practice compassion, and build community from the wonderful diversity of each and every community member. UWest is here to support our students of all races, nationalities, ethnicities, religions, genders and gender identities, sexual orientations, ages, and abilities. This inclusiveness extends, of course, also to those students who currently do not enjoy the privilege of documented status in the U.S. Please know that we take very seriously the protection of your privacy and of your well-being as a fully included member of our community”

– Dr. Stephen Morgan, President
