"The Trump Administration’s announcement today to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, DACA, over the next six months leaves us with many unknowns. But we remain certain of VCU’s unequivocal support of our DACA students. DACA students are an integral part of our community, and VCU will continue to assist DACA students as they complete their educations and move on to contribute to our society."
