Recent Immigration Actions and Policies

The University actively monitors developments related to immigration policy, Executive Orders and other governmental actions that affect our international community. Below are resources on published guidance, UR practices, and emerging topics. Please review UR communications regarding immigration actions for the latest developments, reactions, and resources.


ISO Summaries: Executive Orders & Other Actions

With the transition to the new Administration on January 20, 2021, several Executive Actions have been issued that rescind, modify, or suspend actions taken by the previous administration. ISO is in the process of reviewing the implications of these actions and will post relevant summaries or links here in the coming weeks.  If you have specific questions in the meantime, please contact our staff directly.

Initial Impact to Selected Historical Actions

Information Sessions

The Office for Global Engagement and the International Services Office (ISO) routinely publish information and hold information sessions regarding important changes and announcements that may impact our community. As needed, the ISO can arrange to meet with various UR constituents that might have questions or concerns regarding specific immigration issues or current climate. Please contact us to request such a session. Additionally, our Events page will post details on upcoming presentations, discussions, and opportunities for community engagement, as well as recorded materials from our Event Archives.

Submit Questions or Concerns

Changing government actions regarding US immigration policy tend to create confusion and uncertainty for our international populations. To share your questions or concerns with ISO staff, all are welcome to complete our submission form. This information will be used to schedule follow-up advising appointments or to prepare for various information sessions. We are here to help!
