President Crossman Continues Commitment to Protect Dreamers

Adler University President Raymond Crossman, Ph.D., has joined more than two dozen distinguished higher education leaders as a member of the Presidents' Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration.

In the wake of sweeping changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the collective effort is aimed at improving how colleges and universities address immigration-related matters affecting their campuses. Members of the group stem from public and private universities and university systems, liberal arts colleges, and community colleges representing hundreds of thousands of students, faculty, and staff across the U.S.

The Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration will support adoption of best practices on campuses, and work in a unified manner to communicate the need for federal and state policies that create a welcoming environment for immigrant, undocumented, and international students.

The alliance’s founding statement, steering committee, founding presidents and members can be found online. The group effort has been highlighted in several national publications.
