DACA Information and Resources

On September 6, 2017, the Trump administration announced the effective end of DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allowed those children who came into this country with undocumented immigrant parents to stay in the United States. Lehigh University values all members of our community, regardless of their country of origin or immigration status. The offices of International Affairs, Student Affairs and Equity and Community are working together to support students who may be affected by this change in policy.
