DREAMER SCHOLARS

Dear Faculty and Staff:

For years, DACA students have deeply enriched our campus community. In their pursuit of education, we all continue to be inspired. Therefore, we would like strongly to echo President Pershing’s statement saying that a diverse community is a core value of the University of Utah. Our message to DACA students is plain and simple: We stand with you and you are welcome here.

Several programs, which we seek to expand, have been created to provide financial assistance to undocumented students. Now more than ever, your support is needed. We ask you to please consider donating to support Dreamers in their pursuit of education in this time of urgency. The Dreamer Support Fund is designed to support undocumented and DACA students at the U. Donations contribute to scholarships, emergency support, programs and expanded access to opportunities (please see document below for additional information).

If you know of anyone who would like to donate to the Dreamer Support Fund, please direct them here.

Additionally, if you have questions or know of students who need support, please do not hesitate to contact the Dream Center at dream@utah.edu or 801-581-3470.

Thank you,


Barb Snyder
Vice President for Student Affairs
