10 minutes for community concerns), the Regents are continuing to ignore our voices and issues of human rights in Arizona.Since the Regents are not including students in the decisions they make, we quite frankly question whoseinterests they serve, given ABOR’s explicit Mission:“The Arizona Board of regents is committed to ensuring access for qualified residents of Arizona toundergraduate and graduate institutions; promoting the discovery, application, and dissemination of new knowledge; extending the benefits of university activities to Arizona’s citizens outside theuniversity; and maximizing the benefits derived from the state’s investment in education.”Since ABOR exists to benefit Arizona’s residents and their communities, we believe that ABOR is obligated torespond to student concerns, especially concerns about human rights issues that impact students, families,and communities well beyond the university educational system.As a diverse coalition of students, we will be approaching our university presidents next week in a final effortto add these student concerns to the ABOR agenda. If ABOR refuses to address human rights violations inArizona in its December meetings, we will rise up and demand that our voices be heard.Regards,Concerned Arizona Public University StudentsOn Thu, Dec 2, 2010 at 11:25 AM, Nancy Tribbensee <Nancy.Tribbensee@azregents.edu> wrote:Thank you for your email regarding several items that Concerned Arizona Public University Students wouldlike the Arizona Board of Regents to consider. Although these individual items will not be on the publicagenda for the December meeting, members of the public may participate in the Call to the Audience at thebeginning of the Board meeting to bring issues of concern to the attention of Regents. Each participant inthe Call to the Audience may speak for up to three minutes. Regents do not respond during the Call to theAudience but may, as appropriate, ask Board or university staff to follow up after the meeting. The Call tothe Audience for the December meeting is scheduled shortly after the meeting commences at 1:30 p.m. on

Request to Put Items on Agenda for December 9 & 10 Meeting
Dear Arizona Board of Regents,We are writing to request that the following issues regarding human rights in Arizona be added to theArizona Board of Regents official agenda for the December 9 and December 10 meeting:1. Take a stance on Senate Bill 1070. As a result of this resolution, universityadministrations should work with their academic senate and student body to create a statewidepolicy of campus sanctuaries that protect students of all races, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation,gender identity, age, creed, class, national origin and physical ability.2. Immediately halt the privatization of Arizona’s public universities, including the reversingthe decision to privatize the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.Privatization of public institutions detrimentally affects students and their communities by rapidlyand unfairly increasing the cost of attendance. Because privatization most impacts students, their families, and their communities, ABOR should gather state-wide public input before any movestowards privatization.3. Restore ABOR’s former commitments to Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) by (a)unifying standards of socially responsible investing at Arizona universities (b) responding tostudent concerns about university ties to corporations that are complicit in human rights violations(c) ordering Arizona universities to divest from Caterpillar, Motorola, and PetroChina (d) creatinginvestment screens specific to human rights abuses linked to the US/Mexico border and theinterior of Arizona; the genocide in Sudan; the conflict in the Congo; the occupation of Palestine.Arizona students are concerned about their lack of voice in the creation and implementation of policiesin Arizona’s universities. We will be attending ABOR’s meetings and hope to see these issues officiallyon the agenda and fairly addressed.Sincerely,
