Campus Events and Resources Regarding the Executive Order
Suzanne Goldberg, Executive Vice President for University Life, presided over a University Life Forum on February 2nd on Executive Orders, Immigration and Our Community (watch here) and encourages you to take part in other campus conversations and resources. Her original message to the university community is below.
Dear Students and Colleagues,
As our community grapples with the evolving presidential restrictions on immigration and other matters, we invite you to join conversations happening on campus this week and beyond. You can also find important resources below for international and undocumented (including DACA) students as well as faculty and staff.
Time: 3:30 - 5:00 p.m
Dates: Started Feb. 3 and will continue every Friday through spring break as needed
Location: Room 101 Warren Hall, No registration required.
If you are directly affected by the recent executive action on immigration, we welcome you to join private information and discussion sessions facilitated by the Office of University Life and the International Students and Scholars Office.
- For details, see the University Life website.
As President Bollinger noted, the International Students and Scholars Office remains the primary and best resource for international students, scholars and faculty about visas, employment, travel and related issues. ISSO also offers individual appointments.
For those who have concerns about immigration, mental health, harassment and violence, you may also want to review the Office of University Life's resource page.
During this time of rapid, unprecedented change in U.S. policy, it is ever more important that we find ways to come together as a University community. If you are hosting an event you would like to share with others at Columbia, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With best regards,
Executive Vice President for University Life
