OCU President: U.S. Executive Order on Immigration Status

As you may have heard, an executive order was signed Friday that would bar people from certain countries from travelling to the United States.

Like all major universities in our state, Oklahoma City University has international students studying on campus, and some members of our faculty come from abroad.

As my colleagues at the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, and the University of Tulsa have recently stated, international students contribute to a diverse learning environment that enriches the college experience for the entire student body. We affirm those statements.

We will continue to monitor changes regarding this evolving issue to determine what we, as a university, are able to do to continue providing a safe and diverse learning environment. As Senator Lankford has noted, we too encourage the president’s staff to evaluate American policy with an eye on both security and compassion.
