Message from our President

Earlier this fall, President Donald Trump repealed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program established by President Obama in 2012. The Executive Order allowed some individuals who entered or remained in the country illegally as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. Like many of our nation’s institutions of higher education, CSU-Pueblo enrolls students and possibly employs individuals who have received DACA protection. With the March 5 phase out of this program fast approaching, I am providing an update on what we know at this time regarding DACA and what the university is doing to support our students and employees.

We will be providing support for three classifications of students:

  • Students eligible for DACA
  • Students who were not DACA eligible, but may be eligible for ASSET (in-state tuition per Colorado Statute)
  • Undocumented students

Individuals whose DACA status was set to expire between September 5 and March 5 were allowed to file for the two-year renewal by October 5, 2017. The Office of Diversity and Inclusion coordinated with Los Pobres to help our students who fell within that time frame to file for renewal.

Supporting our DACA Students and Employees

What we do know is that we will communicate with you as soon as possible once we know more and will work closely with you to provide support and assistance. I am empathetic to the anxiety and fear you feel as you deal with this issue and saddened that we have come to this crossroads. You are ThunderWolves and we want you to know that your welfare and success will remain our highest priorities. Take care of yourselves and each other, and know that your university will stand with you to the fullest extent possible.
