Privacy and Non-Discrimination
The confidentiality of student and personnel records is deeply important at Penn. The university keeps student and personnel records private and will not share such information with immigration agencies unless legally compelled to do so. Any Penn office that receives a request for information from an immigration enforcement agency should route that request to the Office of General Counsel. The Penn Division of Public Safety does not have responsibility for immigration enforcement. Consistent with the approach of law enforcement agencies in Philadelphia, it does not inquire about immigration status in the normal course of its duties and will not participate with other agencies in immigration enforcement activities unless legally required to do so.
