>> As many of you have heard there is increasing pressure to convince the
>> administration to declare NYU a Sanctuary Campus especially given the
>> horrifying events over the weekend and beyond that has already
>> directly affected NYU students, staff and faculty.
>>
>> Here is a link to a letter in support of Sanctuary Status signed by a
>> wide range or centers and campus-based groups and organizations:
>> https://medium.com/@nyusanctuary/dear-president-hamilton-
>> 8f2a82879b98#.br5acsczn
>>
>> We have established a student-faculty Sanctuary Working Group that has
>> put together a handout explaining why Sanctuary status is important
>> both symbolically and in practice (i.e. not just a difference over
>> terminology).

>> It would be great if there was efforts within MCC and across
>> Steinhardt to take leadership on supporting this call. Several
>> colleagues, graduate and undergraduate students and staff in MCC are
>> involved in these efforts.

>> Thank you and all best,
