EUA statement against Trump’s travel ban receives wide support
09 February 2017
EUA issued a statement on 30 January 2017 calling on US President Donald Trump to rethink or recall a controversial executive order that immediately and unnecessary affected the movement of international researchers, university faculty and students from seven Muslim-majority countries.
The order, key parts of which are currently blocked by a federal district judge’s ruling, continues to unfairly disrupt individual lives and is potentially damaging to the free flow of people and ideas that is paramount in higher education and research, as well as for a knowledge-based society.
The statement gained wide support in the higher education community. Universities wishing to support EUA’s statement can write to firstname.lastname@example.org or connect with the Association through social media.
