Michigan State University has announced the launch of a new website created for “undocumented students.”
The “Undocumented Student Resource” center, which is operated by the Office for Inclusion and Intercultural Initiatives, provides answers to a variety of frequently asked questions and addresses the unique concerns of current or prospective students with dubious immigration status.
“Michigan State University is committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all,” the school explains on the site. “That includes our commitment to admit and support students from all backgrounds, adhering to our values of being a campus that is diverse, equitable and free from discrimination.”
“We are aware undocumented students, refugees and recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as well as students, staff and faculty with mixed-immigration status often face barriers and challenges as they navigate campus policies requiring support services to address their unique needs. To assist, multiple units across campus are working together to increase institutional support for these students as well as provide training and advising related to admissions, financial aid, and residency reclassification.”
