Dear University Members,
Submit A Public Comment To Share What You Think About the Proposed Immigration Changes
Dear friends and colleagues,
With the 2018 elections behind us, it is essential that we continue to band together to support the immigrants in our communities. Over the past two years, there has been increased scrutiny of immigrants and a near-constant conversation nationally about our immigration laws and system. This will surely continue, even after the results of the midterm elections have settled.
This message was sent to University faculty, staff and students from President Eric W. Kaler on Nov. 15, 2018
Dear members of the University community,
A top priority of mine is to advance key efforts concerning University of Minnesota history on all of our campuses. I’m writing to share updates on the current and next phases of that work.
