UR’s welcoming of hurricane-affected students from universities in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as the SA Government’s recent support for undocumented students on campus, are both admirable moves to support students who need it.

The Office of Admissions’ plans to offer a semester of cost-free attendance to up to 12 students from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands who have had their studies interrupted by the damage of hurricanes Maria and Irma is a thoughtful move on the part of the administration. It’s one that demonstrates UR’s capacity to think globally and compassionately regarding the allocation of funds.

SA Government’s recent launching of a fund dedicated to supporting UR students who are facing immigration related challenges is a direct and helpful action in response to news regarding the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a government policy that sought to relax immigration crackdowns on children brought to the U.S. by their guardians, is refreshing in a time when administrative bodies have been afraid to make political stands.
