Director’s Statement Regarding Recent Executive Order on Immigration

During this time of uncertainty, we would like to remind our students, alumni, faculty and staff that you belong to an educational and professional community that values and supports you.  This community has spoken out on the recent executive order barring the entry or return of individuals from certain countries.  Please find their statements below.

Over the years, we here at the iSchool have had the opportunity and privilege to work with students, faculty, and staff from various countries, religions, and backgrounds.  The experiences have enriched and deepened our lives and program, as well as our profession. We are firmly committed to and value all the members of our community.
