At the December 15, 2016 meeting of the T-Faculty Senators Council, the Council unanimously approved the following resolution:

The NYU Tenured/Tenure Track Faculty Senators Council commends President Hamilton’s statements in support of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and our undocumented students and urges the university to continue taking proactive responses to any potential threats to the civil liberties, personal safety, and academic freedom of NYU community members.
We encourage the university to recognize the symbolic importance of designating NYU a “Sanctuary campus” to bolster NYU’s policies in defense of undocumented members of our community.  We encourage the administration to continue to impose a zero-tolerance policy to hate crimes and to play a leadership role in opposing a national Muslim Registry, which runs counter to our values.
