SU president reaffirms support for DACA

September 5, 2017

In a letter to the campus community and shared widely with alumni and friends of the university, SU President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., expressed "deep disappointment" in President Trump's decision today to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). 

Directly addressing those impacted by the decision, Father Sundborg wrote, "While we are hopeful Congress will pass legislation to maintain the DACA protections, we know how difficult and painful this current situation is for you.

"Seattle University is a welcoming and inclusive institution and campus community. We stand with you and remain committed to doing everything we can to support you. We value the many contributions you make to our society, workforce and university."
