CSM Stands with Dreamers
College of Saint Mary is committed to standing with the DREAMERS of America. It's our mission as a university to provide access to education for all women in an environment that calls forth potential and fosters leadership. While many colleges are aware of the looming Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) issue, we have taken an active role in it. By holding advocacy events, participating in documentaries and other projects, and traveling to Washington D.C. to meet face-to-face with legislators, CSM is taking a stand to protect the access to education for immigrants of this great country.
