Undocumented students and DACA recipients

At Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, we firmly believe that everyone who wants an education should have access to higher education. That is why we provide special resources and support for undocumented students and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. We are committed to building campuses and communities where all feel welcome and safe.

Johns Hopkins’ commitment to undocumented students

Ronald J. Daniels, Johns Hopkins University President, praised the U.S. Supreme Court Decision in June 2020 to preserve protections for certain undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S as children.


“These talented and devoted students were raised in America and should be able to purse the promise of opportunity afforded by an education at a great American research university like ours without fear or anxiety. We will continue to join our peers in advocating vigorously on behalf of Dreamers and ensuring that they—and all members of our community—can participate fully, safely, and equally in our educational, research, and service mission.”

Ronald J. Daniels, Johns Hopkins University President

As Carey Business School students, you are welcome to the network as a First-Generation, Limited Income graduate because you attended and graduated a four-year university.
