To All Members of the Campus Community:
There have been and, increasingly, continue to be many reports in the news media, on television, and in social media about the detention and deportation of immigrants. Some of these stories have been verified; many have not. In light of the confusion and uncertainty caused by these stories, I want to share with the Hornet Family the interim policy that outlines Sacramento State’s commitment to creating a safe environment on our campus for all of our Family, including our undocumented students.
At the request of the CSU Chancellor’s Office, we began work on this policy last semester; it reflects the standard practices already in use by the Sacramento State Police Department.
Safety on our campus is critically important, and we are committed to ensuring that our undocumented, international, and DACA students can continue their studies without fear. This commitment extends to all of our students, regardless of political persuasion, ethnicity, age, sex, gender, disability, religion, sexual identity, nationality, or documentation status. We must band together to protect and support one another.
You can view the policy here.
