DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a program for students who were brought to this country as children–the Dreamers–who in most cases don’t know anywhere else as home.  HSU President Lisa Rossbacher is committed to all student success and says the university will continue doing all it can to help Dreamers succeed in school and become Humboldt alumni.  

 Humboldt State President Lisa Rossbacher released a statement today regarding the Trump Administration's decision to rescind the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals act, commonly known as DACA.

Dear HSU Community,

We have a simple message today for Dreamers. Humboldt State University stands with you, and we care about you. We’re going to keep doing all we can to help you succeed in school and become Humboldt alumni.

Humboldt State University student Karla Sanchez waited in anticipation on what the Trump administration would decide to do to the DACA program.
