President Hays' response to DACA repeal

September 5, 2017

Dear Regis community,

Regis stands with all of those affected by the harmful repeal of DACA by the president. We urge lawmakers of all parties to work together and continue to provide critical status to young people who have done nothing wrong and have lived most of their lives in the United States. I have personally reached out to Congresswoman Clark to express my disappointment in this decision and urge her to push for a quick legislative remedy. Our leadership team is working to understand who in our community may be affected by this decision and how we can best support them. Their dreams are our dreams, and we will stand with them in every way possible including the following:

  • David Crisci, Director of our Center for Global Connections, is available for assistance and referrals to outside agencies and attorneys. He can be reached 24-7 at david.crisci@regiscollege.edu.
  • The Campus Ministry and Service team is available to meet with anyone in the community with concerns.
  • Father Paul Kilroy emphasizes he will talk with anyone confidentially and work to bring a group together for support. He can be reached at paul.kilroy@regiscollege.edu.
  • Student Affairs staff at both the undergraduate and graduate level is available 24-7.
  • Counseling services are available through Regis College Health Services.

The university will do everything within its legal powers to support our community and keep our members safe. Outside the established requirements of the visa-sponsorship programs we participate in, the university does not provide lists or other information based on an individual’s immigration or citizenship status to external parties or authorities. Campus police will not detain, seek out, or assist in deporting a university student or employee solely based on immigration status.

I pledge to you that Regis will always welcome all without distinction and remains committed to caring for our dear neighbor.

Sincerely,

Antoinette M. Hays, PhD, RN
President
