EKU President Michael T. Benson’s Statement on DACA decision
Eastern Kentucky University joins the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), American Council on Education (ACE) and Association of Governing Boards (AGB) in expressing our disappointment in today’s decision to rescind DACA.
EKU has always been an institution that embraces and fosters individual opportunity for all of our students, and we will not waver from that commitment. We will do everything in our power to continue to support all EKU students in pursuit of higher education and a better life for themselves and their families. It is our hope that Congress takes quick, decisive and bipartisan action on the DACA program to provide a long-term solution for students seeking a college degree. EKU will work to educate our congressional representatives on the impact DACA action will have on our students. The University will remain focused on student success and the path to educational attainment, regardless of where that journey started for our diverse student population.
