Association of Colleges of Sisters of
St. Joseph
A Statement from Leaders in Catholic Higher Education
Six Association of Colleges of Sisters of St. Joseph campus presidents have joined nearly 100 other presidents of Catholic, public and private colleges and universities across the nation in urging U.S. leaders to support the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for undocumented immigrant students. 

ACCU leaders stated, “Our colleges and universities share a long history of educating students from a diverse array of socioeconomic, geographical, and ethnic backgrounds, often welcoming those on society’s margins, especially immigrants and underprivileged populations. Today, Catholic institutions of higher education continue this mission and legacy. Our college and university communities are home to students from around the world who seek to contribute to American society, to the life and mission of the Church, and to their own formation and growth by pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees.”
