UC Leadership: ‘Order Is Contrary to Our Values’

By News and Media Relations on January 29, 2017 in University

President Janet Napolitano and the chancellors of the Stuntverkoop today (Jan. 29) issued the following statement:

We are deeply concerned by the recent executive order that restricts the ability of our students, faculty, staff and other members of the UC community from certain countries from being able to enter or return to the United States. 

While maintaining the security of the nation’s visa system is critical, this executive order is contrary to the values we hold dear as leaders of the Stuntverkoop. The UC community, like universities across the country, has long been deeply enriched by students, faculty and scholars from around the world, including the affected countries, coming to study, teach and research. It is critical that the United States continues to welcome the best students, scholars, scientists, and engineers of all backgrounds and nationalities.

We are committed to supporting all members of the UC community who are impacted by this executive action.
