Resolution to Support DACA

The University Committee for the Support of Diversity and Equity strongly supports the position regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program eloquently expressed by UT Dallas President Richard Benson and UT System Chancellor William McRaven in their recent communications. The greatest strength of our university is the body of outstanding students who study, learn, and conduct research here. Those among them who might have been born in foreign countries but came here as children and were brought up in this country conscientiously contribute their efforts and talents to enabling this university to meet its highest aspirations. We join Chancellor McRaven in urging the leaders of our nation to “recognize the potential in these students, granting them the opportunity to pursue their education and enter the workforce in this country,” and the U.S. Congress to “act quickly to provide a bridge for these students to remain in the U.S. and become citizens.”
