Global Engagement

Adelphi DACA, International and Immigration Task Force

Adelphi’s DACA, International and Immigration Task Force will ensure that the University continues to monitor the issues related to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), immigration status, visa and international student climate. We will provide guidance on identifying opportunities for advocacy, messaging and outreach; serve as a coordinating body for resources and information; and suggest other actions the University might take.
