The aspirations and the drive of our DREAMers reflect the optimism, opportunity and work ethic on which the promise of this country is founded. The United States is the only place that they have ever called home, and they long to serve it as teachers, physicians, lawyers, soldiers, entrepreneurs or scientists.
Our nation benefits when all of our children have the opportunity to study, work and live without fear. When we create this open environment, more individuals see how their own aspirations align with those of their communities. This shared sense of purpose strengthens us all.
Davidson College stands with DREAMers and with all who seek a more just and humane world.
—Carol E. Quillen, President
