Chancellor Joins Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration

Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy

Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy has joined the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration, a coalition of higher education leaders dedicated to increasing public understanding of how immigration policies and practices impact students, campuses and communities.

Founded last month, the alliance’s membership includes more than 140 American higher education leaders of public and private universities and university systems, liberal arts colleges and community colleges representing hundreds of thousands of students, faculty and staff from institutions across the country.

Along with urging legal protections for undocumented “Dreamers” brought to the U.S. as children, the alliance will support adoption of best practices on campuses and work in a unified manner to communicate the need for federal and state policies that create a welcoming environment for immigrant and international students.
