MSU Denver leadership supports AASCU statement on immigration order

American Association of State Colleges and Universities urges administration to reconsider its recent action on immigration.

February 1, 2017

The senior leadership of MSU Denver and its deans affirm their unqualified support of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities’ Jan. 29 statement, and we join in respectfully urging the administration to reconsider its executive order on immigration. 


The United States has long benefitted from scientific, cultural and economic contributions of international students and scholars. America's state colleges and universities have been strengthened by the presence of students and faculty from around the globe, including those from the seven countries specifically targeted by the president's executive order. We share in the collective commitment to protect our national security while at the same time enriching our nation with invaluable contributions from abroad. Accordingly, we respectfully urge the administration to reconsider its recent action.
