On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an Executive Order entitled “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States by Foreign Nationals.” A copy of the order will be available at https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/executive-orders. The actions required by the Executive Order could affect students, faculty, and staff of the University who are traveling or who have plans to travel outside of the United States.

We are working closely with General Administration to better understand the impact of this order for our community. In addition, the Provost’s Office, Office of Human Resources, International Programs Center, and others have been reaching out to individuals who may be directly affected. Our commitment to the values of equality, inclusion, and diversity remains as strong as ever. These individuals and their families have our support, and their welfare is of utmost concern.

We will continue to monitor and analyze the impact of the executive order and will communicate this information to the campus community and to members of the Spartan family directly impacted.
