To the Muhlenberg Community:

Muhlenberg College is committed to a nation in which all students can pursue pathways to powerful outcomes. For more than 169 years, Muhlenberg College has worked to help students develop their future roles in advancing a better society.

In accordance with our commitment to diversity and inclusion, I have previously spoken out in support of the DACA program. Uprooting these young people would be a severe injustice and send all the wrong messages about who we are as a nation.

Muhlenberg - Defend DACA

​We add our voices to those who urge Congress to maintain DACA protections. I encourage all members of the Muhlenberg community – including students, faculty and staff – to reach out to our elected representatives in both houses of Congress to urge them to take swift legislative action to protect these young people by statute. 



John I. Williams, Jr
