University Issues Statement on DACA

Today, the administration announced its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. While deeply concerned, the University of Miami is hopeful that Congress will come to an effective solution that protects the status of DACA students and employees before March, when the program is set to expire.

As previously stated, the University supports employees and students who fall within the DACA status, and the University will do all it can within the law to enable them to continue their employment and education.

The University also has resources on campus available to students and employees for consultation and counseling, including the School of Law’s renowned Immigration Clinic, which offers free and confidential consultations, and the UM Counseling Center. The University’s Division of Student Affairs and Division of Enrollment Management are also standing by to assist students.
