Message from the Chancellor in Support of International Students
Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:
This week, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued a new directive that could have a profoundly negative impact on international students. I write to you today to share that Syracuse University is joining an amicus brief in support of litigation filed by Harvard and M.I.T. challenging this order.
Under the new rule, students holding F-1 visas who are taking only online classes would not be allowed to remain in the United States. At this time, we expect the vast majority of our students will be taking in-person classes this fall. We are working closely with our international students to ensure that they are able to register for in-person courses under our hybrid instructional model and therefore be in compliance with this new directive.
To our international students, I say this: You have our unequivocal support. You are an integral part of our global Orange community. Your excellence and contributions to our University enrich us all.
Kent Syverud, Chancellor and President
