Statement from Chancellor Blank on executive order on immigration

Throughout its history, the University of Wisconsin–Madison has been fortunate to draw together students, faculty and staff from many different countries, religions and backgrounds. This diversity is a source of strength and innovation and it enhances our research, teaching and outreach. It also drives the Wisconsin Idea through the ideals of sharing knowledge and building global partnerships.

We add our voice to those of the Association of American Universities (AAU), the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities (APLU) and many of our peer institutions calling for a reconsideration of the administration’s new order barring the entry or return of individuals from certain countries.
