OFFICES OF THE UC CHANCELLORS
January 30, 2017
Dear UC San Diego Campus Community:
The following University of California statement – signed by President Napolitano and all 10 UC Chancellors – expresses our commitment to supporting all members of the UC community.
President Janet Napolitano and the Chancellors of the University of California 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 University of California. 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.
