Message from Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., Loyola’s president: Responding to ICE guidance for international students

Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., released this statement in light of the guidance that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) issued on July 6, 2020, related to international students:

“As institutions of higher education prepare to welcome students back to their campuses for the fall semester, the guidance that ICE has issued adds additional, detrimental challenges for international students—and the institutions that serve them. These students, who are pursuing educational opportunities in the United States, benefit from their studies here. They also enrich their institutions and our communities in many ways. They—and their institutions of higher education—need flexibility to be able to support and educate these students, particularly during this time when adaptability and innovation are critical to the world of higher education.”

The Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities has released this statement.
