University of Arkansas issues statement on Pres. Trump's immigration orders

"As the state's flagship research university, we have a responsibility to enhance our education and research mission".

Gogue and Boosinger recommended that any students, faculty, staff or dependents that may be affected by the order not travel outside of the United States until further notice.

In addition to the dissent voiced by Bollinger and Spar, students and faculty have reacted to Trump's immigration ban with shock and disgust.

Knapp said in the release that he will uphold the principles stated in December and that the University will continue to "safeguard student records and provide legal and counseling services to all who need them".

The chancellor said he believes no students, faculty or staff from the affected countries were overseas when the executive order took effect.

Three more meetings are planned before Friday as the university works to answer worldwide students' questions about the president's executive order and explain the resources available to them, including counseling, a USC spokesman said.

University of Montana Interim President Sheila Stearns addresses President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban on seven countries with concerns on how this will affect the school.

"Public research universities are deeply concerned about the administration's new policy preventing visa and green card holders of seven countries from returning to the USA for 90 days". Trump's order also bars entry for refugees from anywhere in the world for 120 days, and bans refugees from Syria indefinitely. They are a vital part of what it means to be a great university in the world we share, and our commitment to their educational and personal welfare is a core value of our institution.

LaGrange College spokeswoman Debby Baker told the Ledger-Enquirer in an email Monday, "We don't have anyone affected by the executive order". I realize that the executive order, the court responses, and the ensuing challenges and changes to policy brings many questions and concerns from those both directly and indirectly affected at the University of Montana.

Accordingly, the International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO) is committed to helping our international students and scholars and is providing them with up-to-date information directly, as well as posting it on their immigration updates page.

The university said it is working with those who are potentially affected.

Universities in Missouri and Kansas are pledging support to global students and faculty who could be affected by President Donald Trump's executive order on refugee policy.

Most refugees detained at US airport have since been released.
