UC San Diego is looking to hire a new “undocumented student support services coordinator,” to be “responsible for the planning, development, implementation, and assessment of programs and services to engage and support undocumented undergraduate and graduate students” at the school, according to a recent online job posting. The new hire will be involved with “the recruitment, development, enrichment, inclusion, retention, and student experience of the UC San Diego undocumented student population,” the notice says. “In addition, the Coordinator is responsible for identifying and collaborating with on — and off — campus resources and partners to help undocumented students address and overcome obstacles to success and well-being.”

The university is also seeking a director of “regional engagement” to manage the school’s “donor development pipeline.” Specifically, says the filing, “the Director will outline multi-year plans to effectively and meaningfully engage alumni and qualify them as donor prospects while deepening their propensity for advocacy and volunteer service.”

Meanwhile, in other UCSD news, the school is out with final governance procedures regarding attendance at its drunk-plagued Sun God festival, to be held May 16 this year. After nearby hospitals complained of too many student admissions from alcohol poisoning at 2013’s blowout, UCSD set up a task force and hired a consultant from Texas to help it deal with the inebriation problem. New rules: attendance will be limited to bona fide UCSD students only, who will be required to wear bar-coded wristbands matching their student IDs. Entry to the International House and Village at Torrey Pines, on-campus housing complexes, will be restricted to residents there in an attempt to shut down the wild partying of the past. And “Under the banner ‘Our Choices, Our Traditions, Our Sun God Festival,’ a peer-to-peer education campaign has been launched to educate students about the risks of excessive drinking and the importance of behaving responsibly during Sun God.”

We should be getting “undocumented student support services coordinators” from ICE. The "support service coordination" should consist of a one-way bus ticket to the border. The United States cannot be the goody grab-bag for the rest of the world.
