Sanctuary Committee

students on Parrish porch

The Sanctuary Committee envisions Swarthmore as a place where all students, regardless of immigration status, have the same opportunities to learn, live, and enjoy full membership in the College community.

Our task is to identify and remedy areas of College programming and/or practice in which we are not yet fulfilling this vision.
