We the signers of this petition wish to demonstrate our support for the June 7th vote of the Metropolitan State University of Denver Board of Trustees to create a more affordable tuition rate for undocumented students. This is directly in line with Metro State’s mission and the American value of an affordable and accessible education for all students. The high cost of tuition is already the number one obstacle to many students’ ability to realize the dream of a college degree. Socioeconomic status, race and documentation should not be an impediment to any person having access to a high quality education.

      It does no good to graduate kids if they have no possibility of future and it's darn near impossible to close the achievement gap if there's no incentive to graduate!

      Immigrant rights are civil fits are human rights. The right to an education is a human right. I would be proud of my Alma Mater to lead this historical battle.

      I work with undocumented students who face enormous odds to afford a quality education for something that they don't have any control over.
