Statement from President John Feaver regarding President Trump's executive order

 

We are extremely concerned about recent developments involving U.S. immigration policy due to President Trump’s new executive order. We are closely monitoring developments concerning this executive order and will keep the college community informed as we better understand the consequences of this action.

Our number one priority is to provide support and assistance for any faculty, staff or student who might be directly or indirectly affected by this unfolding situation.

In addition to faculty and staff who hail from other countries, we count more than 60 international students who have chosen to attend this college. All lend an especially important ingredient to the teaching and learning environment at USAO in reflecting the wonderful diversity of the complex world in which we work and live.

Because of the confusion and doubt caused by the President’s executive action on immigration, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact my office or those of my other administrative staff.

By its very nature, this college must not only acknowledge the reality of diversity but also celebrate its inclusion in our understanding of what it means to be human.
