Chancellor Gary S. May issued the following statement today (July 16):

A federal judge has blocked new DACA applications. Here at UC Davis, we have a dedicated community of undocumented and DACA recipient students from across the globe. These students — many of whom are the first in their families to attend college — contribute to our rich diversity of cultures and perspectives that is integral to our success as a global university. We reiterate our unwavering support for our students. Our students can find resources at the AB540 and Undocumented Student Center.
