Goddard President: Bob Kenny Joins AVIC Presidents in Statement Against DACA Revocation
Two weeks ago Goddard College’s President Bob Kenny was one of seventeen College Presidents from AVIC (Association of Vermont Independent Colleges) to sign the “Statement on the Revocation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program”.
This statement outlined the groups deep concern over the termination of the DACA program, and expressed their support for Vermont’s lawsuit against it.
Here’s an excerpt:
“We are proud to be members of a state that has long embraced and protected its immigrants. Our institutions all seek to enroll the best and most promising individuals regardless of their circumstances, and we have benefitted from the presence and contributions of DACA students. Vermont is a state that is proud of its independent spirit, strong sense of community, and sense of justice. We stand united with DACA students.”
