FEEL FREE TO REVISE AS NEEDED BY YOUR DEPARTMENT
Option 1 (Circulated by the Provost’s Office):
Citizenship and/or Immigration Status: All students are welcome in this class regardless of citizenship, residency, or immigration status. Your professor will respect your privacy if you choose to disclose your status. As for all students in the class, family emergency-related absences are normally excused with reasonable notice to the professor, as noted in the attendance guidelines above. UNM as an institution has made a core commitment to the success of all our students, including members of our undocumented community.
The Administration’s welcome is found on UNM’s website: http://undocumented.unm.edu/.
Option 2 (Drafted by SCWG members, with guidance from the NM Dream Team):
Support for Undocumented Students: As an educator, I fully support the rights of undocumented students to an education and to live free from the fear of deportation. I pledge that I will not disclose the immigration status of any student who shares this information with me unless required by a judicial warrant, and I will work with students who require immigration-related accommodations.
