Statement of Glenn DuBois, Chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges
(Richmond) – Glenn Dubois, the Chancellor of Virginia’s Community Colleges made the following statement today in response to the Trump Administration’s DACA Announcement:
“I am deeply saddened to see today’s announcement regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in Washington, and my thoughts quickly turn to the more than 1,000 community college students across Virginia whose future hangs in the balance as this policy debate plays out. Further, I join the chorus heard across America calling on Congress to quickly enact sensible and compassionate immigration policy.
“As I’ve said many times: Virginia’s Community Colleges exist to give everyone the opportunity to learn and develop the right skills so lives and communities are strengthened. Our faculty, staff, and students should never question if that mission includes them because it always does.
“We await further results from Washington, and guidance from the Office of the Attorney General of Virginia on what our community colleges can do as we pursue our mission and support the individuals who seek opportunity with us.”
