Do you have questions or concerns how the Executive Order concerning immigration may impact you or others you know? UConn International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) is holding information sessions in the International Center Lounge, located in McMahon Hall, which will cover all details of the order and how affected students/ scholars can plan for these changes. ISSS also urges any UConn student to notify their office immediately if they receive any notice regarding their visa.

Update Thursday, 2/2/17: UConn President Susan Herbst issued a second message to the UConn community on Thursday, February 2, 2017 which both informed the community on how the White House executive order on immigration is impacting the University as well as reaffirms UConn’s stance on this matter. President Herbst stated that: “As a university, we are steadfastly committed to openness, inclusion, and to treating our fellow human beings with dignity, compassion, and respect. The executive order issued last Friday is antithetical to these values.”
