SGS News & Resources on the Recent Executive Order on Immigration and Travel Ban

Feb 2 2017

Posted In:


The Stanford Global Studies community is deeply concerned by the implications of the recent Executive Order on immigration, and shares the university's support for our international and undocumented community.

"As a community, Stanford thrives because of our commitment to diversity, our openness to diverse perspectives and ideas, and our continued welcoming of students, educators, and researchers from around the world," says Stanford Global Studies Director Jeremy M. Weinstein. "We remain firmly committed to these values, and Stanford is prepared to provide support and assistance to members of our community who are directly affected by these new rules."

Stanford Global Studies centers and programs are working closely with the School of Humanities & Sciences to identify students and visitors who have been or might be affected. If there are any individuals in your community who may be affected, please share this information with the head of your respective center. This page is an excellent resource for finding support about this issue on campus,
