University Statement regarding DACA

The University of Louisville is deeply concerned about the Trump administration’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Absent Congressional action during the next six months, this decision could harm many members of our university community, their families and their loved ones.

We want you to know that we cherish every member of our campus community, and we will explore ways to ensure that a UofL education is accessible to all. As our diversity slogan clearly states, “You Belong.”

For students, faculty and staff who are anxious or concerned about how DACA will affect them, the university is offering resources to help you cope:

  • The U of L Counseling Center will be accepting drop-in appointments Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can find more information at 502-852-6585.
  • The Cultural Center and its Hispanic/Latino Initiatives office are available to offer student support and resources. Call 502- 852-6656 for more information.
  • Our campus Undocumented Student Resource Council is a group of students, faculty, staff and friends who work on improving the experience of undocumented students. The next meeting is Tuesday, Sept. 19, at 2 p.m. in the Cultural Center. For more information or to get involved, send a note to brian.buford@louisville.edu.

Again, we want to stress that we value and will continue to support all members of our university family.

Sincerely,

Gregory Postel, M.D.
