HSU Reaffirms Support for Dreamers Following Supreme Court Ruling
The Supreme Court blocked the Trump Administration’s effort to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a federal program that allows children of undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States.
While the Trump Administration may still try to end DACA, today’s ruling reflects Humboldt State University and the California State University system’s support for HSU Dreamer students, employees, and their families.
Dreamer Student Resources has updates, an FAQ page, and links to important resources, such as the Immigration Preparedness Toolkit, published by the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (practical tips on knowing and asserting your rights, common pathways for immigration relief, and more).
Free immigration consultations from the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) via Zoom for HSU students, staff, and faculty. To sign up for a free consultation, call HSU’s Educational Opportunity Program at 707-335-9510 or sign up with CHIRLA directly (scroll down to Humboldt State University, “schedule an appointment”).
The CARE Team (Campus Assistance, Response, and Engagement) in the Office of the Dean of Students offers assistance with academic accommodations/advocacy including notifying professors regarding missed classes, dropping a course, and withdrawing from a course due to extenuating circumstances. Services also include help understanding university policy and procedures. Contact CARE by emailing [email protected] or calling 707-826-3504. If you miss them by phone, please leave a voice message and DOS or CARE staff will respond at their earliest availability.
Counseling and Psychological Services is open and operating remotely. Call 707.826.3236 or [email protected].

CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White's Statement on Supreme Court DACA Ruling
(June 18, 2020) – The following statement can be attributed to California State University Chancellor Timothy P. White:
“The decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to reject the rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is a truly outstanding and welcome outcome, especially for the nearly 700,000 DACA recipients nationwide, including thousands of students and employees of the California State University (CSU).
Some of the CSU’s brightest students and most dedicated employees are Dreamers and they are found on each of our 23 campuses. They, like their peers, seek a better life for themselves and their families, and they powerfully contribute to the strength of the university and their own communities through service and leadership.
While this decision is an important victory, it does not protect the program from further challenge, nor does it provide a permanent solution to allow our Dreamers to achieve their aspirational goals. The CSU continues to urge Congress to take swift, bipartisan legislative action toward a much-needed permanent solution so that our Dreamers can continue to fulfill their human potential and strengthen our campuses, communities, state and nation.”
