Dear Pitzer Community,

Dean Boyle and I met with our Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) students last night. We discussed the concerns that have arisen regarding their educations here at Pitzer, and also concerns about the family members of DACA students, the undocumented family members of non-DACA students, and the welfare of our DACA alumni.

We are working to address concerns in a very uncertain climate. The well-being of our DACA students is a top priority and we will work with FEC, Cabinet and peer institutions to protect their interests. In the meantime, we would like to express our own solidarity with all members of our community who fear the consequences of current political changes.
