I Oppose the Trump Travel Ban

This statement is found on my LinkedIn profile:

I’ve been giving notice on my social media accounts to this list by David Comp. I believe it’s a moral obligation for any American campus President, with international students and scholars on their campus, to speak out against the ban. David’s list, as of 2-2, represents less than 10% of the 3,000 campuses in the U.S. known to have international students enrolled.…This is David’s notice to NAFSA members to assist him in keeping the list updated…WRITE HIM IF YOUR CAMPUS PRESIDENT HAS ISSUED A PUBLIC STATEMENT AND IT IS NOT ON THE LIST:

This past Sunday I started compiling a list of U.S. colleges and universities and higher education organizations/associations that have issued statements in response to President Trump’s Executive Order Entitled “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Entry into the United States by Foreign Nationals” that was issued last Friday, January 27, 2017. You can access the list at bit.ly/2k7ixtQ.

The list of institutions and higher education organizations/associations links to their public statements and I’m seeking your assistance in identifying additional institutions and organizations/associations to add to the list. The list has grown to non-U.S. universities and organizations as well and I’m particularly interested in growing these lists.

What I’m seeking are links to public statements (which have mainly been posted to institutional and organization/association websites but on occasion to their Twitter and Facebook pages) so they may be added to the growing list. If your institution or organization/association has issued a response and it has been made public and accessible online I would appreciate hearing from you via email at international.ed.consulting@gmail.com.

The resource list at a glance (as of this posting):

  • Link to President Trump’s Executive Order Entitled “Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Entry into the United States by Foreign Nationals”
  • Two online petitions
  • 227 U.S. colleges and universities
  • 68 higher education organizations and associations
  • 12 non-U.S. universities (all Canada so far)

You can access the list online at bit.ly/2k7ixtQ.

I hope you find the list helpful and thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide in identifying new statements.
