Statement of Support for Undocumented Students
UC Davis School of Medicine is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for its undocumented students and to providing the resources for their success. On Nov. 30, 2016, UC President Janet Napolitano issued a Statement of Principles in Support of Undocumented Members of the UC Community. It reaffirms UC’s commitment to vigorously protect the privacy and civil rights of undocumented students, as it does all members of its community. The principles assert that UC, including UC Davis School of Medicine will continue to welcome and support pre-medical and medical students without regard to immigration status, will not share student information without legal warrant and will not take part in joint efforts with any government agency to carry out federal immigration policy. Additionally, we do not consider immigration status in the evaluation of applicants for our pathway programs or medical school admissions.
