Dialogue

Stanford students and administrators have begun a series of collaborative discussions to address concerns related to diversity and inclusion raised by the Who’s Teaching Us coalition. This web page has been created to provide updates to the campus community on the discussions occurring and to report on the progress being made in exploring each of the five major areas of concern identified.

Please follow the links below to find updates on efforts that address each major area of concern.

Major Areas of Concern Raised by the Who’s Teaching Us Coalition

THE LEGAL LIMBO OF DACA

Attorney General Jeff Session’s announcement that the Trump administration is ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program came as no real surprise. This is what Donald Trump promised to do if elected president. But let’s be honest. The DACA program was always a stopgap measure instituted by President Obama because of Congress’s failure to fix our broken immigration system. For years, Congress batted around the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which would have provided immigrants who came as children a path to citizenship.
