UB Monitoring Executive Orders

From President Tripathi -

I am writing to let our university community know about some of the activities and actions taken by UB in response to the Friday, January 27, 2017 executive order entitled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States,” as well as several other executive orders that may impact our foreign-born students, faculty, visiting scholars, and staff. We are assessing Friday’s executive order and actively monitoring the potential impact on members of the UB community who are from countries cited in the order.

Until there is clarity and legal analysis of the executive order, the university is advising that affected members of the university community monitor this evolving situation to assess how they may be impacted. In addition, we are advising our students to adhere to the recommendations of SUNY to suspend travel plans to the countries included in the executive order, and urge individuals affected to keep in contact with UB’s Office of International Education on a regular basis. The university will continue to provide updates to the university community as the situation becomes clearer and will continue to offer support and advice to members of our university community who may be affected by any changes in immigration law.
