UB statement on pending executive actions affecting immigration

Release Date: January 25, 2017

The University at Buffalo is an international community. And since our university’s founding, UB has been enriched by students, faculty and staff from around the world.  In fact, this week the university welcomes a new group of incoming international students. Despite pending executive actions affecting access to the United States by persons from designated countries, UB is a welcoming campus for students, faculty and visitors from across the globe.  It is important to keep in mind the valuable and far-reaching contributions our international students, faculty and staff make to UB’s research, education and engagement missions. UB’s international community benefits all of us, enhancing the diversity of our community, our global learning opportunities and the richness of our cultural and intellectual life.
