University of Virginia concerned over Trump's executive order on immigration

SUNY says 320 students from banned countries: urges no travel

The statement said little about the university's plans to handle Trump's ban on admitting refugees and citizens of several predominately Muslim countries.

We are proud to affirm our unequivocal support for the members of our community who come from nations affected by this executive order.

The university said about 73 students, visiting scholars and alumni are affected by the order.

USC president Harris Pastides tweeted Sunday afternoon, "We value int'l students, faculty & staff and are committed to their safety and success regardless of religion, ethnicity or nat'l origin".

At the University of Dayton, 45 students, faculty and staff are from the affected countries. BU wouldn't disclose their identities, to protect them from potential backlash, spokesperson Renee Charles said.

The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) President Peter McPherson released a statement today regarding President Trump's executive order that temporarily bans citizens of seven countries from entering the U.S.

"America's state colleges and universities have been strengthened by the presence of students and faculty from around the globe, including those from the seven countries specifically targeted by the president's executive order", the association said in a statement. My leadership team is monitoring the impact of the order.

Any University of SC student can refer questions regarding this ban to the university's International Student Services.

"Beyond our concern for individual students, faculty, and staff at UVA who are affected by the executive order, we are concerned about the larger effect this and related actions may have on American universities, including UVA, as we seek to expose students to worldwide experiences", Sullivan continued in her statement.

Trump's order led to protest at airports across the country over the weekend.

As this dynamic situation develops, the University will continue to monitor the situation and offer the best advice possible for students, staff, and faculty.

Knapp said in the release that he will uphold the principles stated in December and that the University will continue to "safeguard student records and provide legal and counseling services to all who need them". "We could not do what we do without you".

DiStefano said he was concerned about the well-being of global students and employees and reiterated CU's commitment to supporting a community of "internationally engaged scholars". The Office of International Programs also has been meeting regularly with international students to keep them informed and safe.
