MSJC Reiterates Support For All of Our Students

In light of the possibility of mass-deportation raids by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Mt. San Jacinto College wants to reaffirm that we fully support and are here to help our undocumented students.

"To our undocumented student population: We hear you and we will do everything we can to support you in achieving your educational goals and be a part of a strong, diverse community,” MSJC Superintendent/President Dr. Roger Schultz said. “We are making a commitment as an institution to collaborate with community organizations that can provide needed services and resources to further support undocumented students as they pursue a quality higher education here at MSJC.”

Under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, undocumented individuals who were brought to the U.S. as minors are allowed to remain in this country, work and get an education, including financial aid. We join the California Community College Chancellor’s Office, other community colleges and institutions of higher education in reaffirming our commitment to providing quality higher education in a safe environment to all of our students, regardless of immigration status, race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation or any other demographic so they may continue to reach their educational goals. MSJC will protect student privacy, which under federal law requires us to keep student information confidential.

MSJC will continue to uphold its mission and values, which call for providing “quality, accessible, equitable and innovative educational programs” to all of our diverse populations.
