Statement on the Elimination of DACA Program

GREELEY, CO – September 5, 2017 – The President’s decision to eliminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is disappointing news to the Aims Board of Trustees, the College and the students we serve. Aims Community College's mission remains one of open access, and the college will continue to welcome all in our community who have a desire to learn.

"It is our sincere hope that bipartisan legislation to protect DACA is swiftly adopted to alleviate fears and uncertainty DACA students and their families are experiencing," said Dr. Leah L. Bornstein, Aims Community College President. "We will communicate our support of DACA to our Congressional delegation immediately." 

The Center for Opportunity and Resilience in Education (CORE) Program at Aims can support students who are impacted by DACA. Students may access these services at the College Center on the Greeley campus, room 226.
