Dear Campus Community,

As we monitor federal actions related to immigration status and other issues that directly impact the lives of so many students and colleagues, my administration and I are focused on gathering information quickly and responding in a timely fashion. As I noted previously, I want to emphasize that I will do everything in my power to support and protect every member of our diverse community.
