Who, How and What About Immigration?
Recently we launched a website to provide clear and concise information about how Appalachian fits into our country’s changing immigration landscape. This website will answer many questions you may have, but I want to be clear - you need not question these fundamental precepts:
- Our institution's top priority is ensuring the safety and well-being of our students, faculty and staff.
- We greatly value the international and immigrant members of our community and the contributions they bring to our campus. They have – and will continue to have – the support of this institution, which welcomed them to the United States.
- Our campus should be a welcoming environment for all members of our community, and no one should feel afraid on our campus. We will continue to dedicate top-level attention and resources to this end.
- Our learning objectives, our Quality Enhancement Plan and our dedication to developing the global competence of our students remain unwavering.
