WKU issues statement on DACA

The following is a statement from Western Kentucky University on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program:
"Western Kentucky University is an institution of opportunity and access. We are committed to our mission of helping all students create a better life for themselves and for those around them through education.

"The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, Executive Order has provided undocumented students temporary protection from deportation since 2012, giving the "Dreamers," as they have been termed, the opportunity to pursue a college education. Today the Trump administration announced it is suspending the DACA program in six months and will leave the issue to Congress to address legislatively.

"WKU officials will comply with all federal and state regulations, including the privacy protections afforded by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) to protect affected students. In addition, we will work proactively with members of our Congressional delegation as they work to resolve this important issue.

"Our priority continues to be supporting our students regardless of nationality, religion, ethnicity, and other aspects of our diverse community.
