BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Cal State Bakersfield President Lynnette Zelezny applauded the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision today on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in a statement released today.
“I am grateful that the highest court in the land has lived up to our country’s highest ideals of compassion and inclusion, and we as CSUB will continue to advocate on behalf of equity and justice for all of our students, faculty and staff,” she said. “At CSUB, our faculty and staff work with our students to develop promise and potential that changes lives and communities. We believe that access to higher education, as well as equity, diversity and inclusion, are the building blocks for progress and excellence in our region and world.”
