I recognize and understand that recent reports about increased Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) activity nationwide have raised questions and concerns on campus and in our broader community.
The UW–Madison Police Department (UWPD) is committed to providing exceptional service to all members of our community regardless of immigration status. I want to reach out and share information about the policies and practices followed by our police department and the university generally:
I also want to make you aware of campus resources that may be helpful. Students may reach out to the Dean of Students Office, which provides assistance and support for the academic and non-academic success of DACA/undocumented students. For mental health support and assistance processing these events, students are encouraged to connect with University Health Services. For questions about international students or scholars, please contact International Student Services (ISS) or International Faculty and Staff Services (IFSS). If you or anyone you know has been affected by ICE, Dane County Immigration Affairs Specialist Fabiola Hamdan is an available resource and may be reached at (608) 242-6260.
