Chancellor Travels to D.C. to Advocate for Dreamers


Chancellor Dorothy Leland made her way to Capitol Hill this week for the first convening of the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration.

Leland is a founding member of the alliance, which spent Monday engaging with immigration policy analysts, coalition leaders, research, legal experts and policymakers in strategic conversation. The group was founded by college and university chancellors and presidents in November 2017 in an effort to increase public understanding of how immigration policies and practices impact higher education students, campuses and communities. Leland represents the UC system on the steering committee.
