TO: The College Community
FROM: Dr. Christopher Adams, Vice President for Student Affairs
SUBJECT: Suffolk Responds: Fight Ignorance, Not Immigrants
Undocumented Students, DACA, and TPS Recipient Resources
The College remains committed to its goals of diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice. Suffolk County Community College serves as an open access institution for all students who seek higher education, including undocumented students, DACA recipients, and Temporary Protective Status holders.
As President McKay stated in College Brief #2 (issued on September 6, 2017), “Together, as a community, we must commit ourselves to tolerance, to understanding, and to advocating for those who need our help at this moment in time. This involves a commitment from everyone. Embracing social justice is at the core of why we do what we do.” As a reminder, the College, with support from the Undocumented Student Task Force, maintains current information regarding DACA, DACA renewal, current TPS status and resources for TPS holders at the following web address http://libguides.sunysuffolk.edu/daca-renewal, which can also be found from the College homepage, by clicking on “Experience Student Life,” followed by “DACA and Undocumented students.”
I am also pleased to share with you that the Undocumented Student Task Force and the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding are co-sponsoring “Suffolk Responds: Fight Ignorance, Not Immigrants,” a full week of awareness programs that have been scheduled to take place on our campuses between March 19 – March 23. The attached flyer contains all of the details for each program.
Please note that all programs are open to all members of the College and local community. If you are interested in bringing your class to any of these events, please call the Center for Social Justice and Human Understanding at (631) 451-4117.
