The University of New Hampshire believes strongly that the protections young people received under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order should continue, and as a member of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, we add our voice to those calling for congressional leaders to find a solution. We know the New Hampshire congressional delegation is supportive, and we encourage them to continue their work to extend legal protections for the young people who applied for and received deferred status under DACA.

Neither federal nor state law requires the university to track DACA students, and we don’t. We do, however, believe strongly that every student deserves to feel safe on our campus and we will continue to work hard to ensure that happens.
