Update from the Immigration Response Team

Friday, April 21, 2017

Hello! Last week the Immigration Response Team hosted a University Community Conversation to discuss a spectrum of immigration-related issues: Legal questions, employment visas, the executive order and travel ban, concerns of refugees, undocumented students and DACA (or Dreamer) students, the campus environment, and questions about health care access.

The IRT is analyzing input from this meeting (as well as many other meetings and conversations across campus) to develop priorities.
