In Solidarity

January 30, 2017

President Stephen Sundborg, S.J., released a statement over the weekend on the Trump Administration’s Jan. 27 executive order on immigration. 

Father Sundborg wrote, in part: "The university strongly opposes the discriminatory and misguided executive order issued by the Trump administration on non-U.S. citizens from select countries (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen). We stand in full solidarity with our international students as well as faculty and staff who may be affected." 

Father Steve’s statement was highlighted by the Ignatian Solidarity Network
