College students with Deferred Action for Childhood Arriva ls (DACA) status face new stressors because of the current state of American politics and the Trump Administration's views on immigration. Recent efforts to end the program have led to DACA recipients no longer feeling safe in their residency status in the U.S. and this holds especially true for the 160,000 DACA students attendmg college on U.S. campuses. Through the framework of Communication Privacy Management Theory, this paper will propose a training program for college faculty and staff to improve their communication with DACA students. Specifically, the program will instruct college faculty and staff how to interact with DACA students so that they do not experience real or perceived invasions of privacy regarding their DACA status or the status of their loved ones.
