A group of presidents belonging to the Patriot League have announced their opposition to the federal government’s new rules restricting access and opportunities for international students attending colleges and universities in the United States.
On Monday, July 6, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued new guidance that prohibits international students from returning to or remaining in the United States this fall if the universities they attend hold courses entirely online. This follows new, recently announced restrictions on international work visas. These actions threaten the work, safety, and wellbeing of many members of our community.
Yesterday, the University learned of a racist TikTok video that was posted by an incoming first-year student and widely shared on Instagram. We have also since learned of another disturbing video, apparently posted by two current students.
