CGCC Board Opposing White House on DACA

The Columbia Gorge Community College Board of Education this week decided to formally oppose efforts by the White House to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.  They joined a national effort by the American Association of Community Colleges to encourage federal legislation allowing DACA recipients to pursue higher education in the United States.  CGCC’s student body is more than 35 percent Latino, and the college is a Sanctuary campus, emphasizing legal protection for all students through federal law that safeguards student education records for all institutions that receive funding from the U.S. Department of Education.  The College Board invited current and potential students who would be adversely affected by loss of DACA to contact CGCC Student Services, which maintains a resource list of community services available to all students.
