ACADEMIC SENATE: SAN DIEGO DIVISION
February 1, 2017
MEMBERS OF THE ACADEMIC SENATE, SAN DIEGO DIVISION
The following resolution was approved at the January 31, 2017 Representative Assembly Meeting.
The Representative Assembly of the University of California San Diego endorses the statement from President Napolitano and all ten UC Chancellors opposing President Trumpís recent Executive Order barring citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entry into the United States.
The Assembly is committed to supporting members of the UCSD community who are affected by this Executive Order.
Statement from UC President Napolitano & Chancellors:
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.
