Campus Resources

I created this page on 1/31/17, mid-term, in order to provide resources and information for those students who may be alarmed or have questions relating to President Trump’s recent executive orders concerning travel and immigration. As I discover new resources, I will post them here. If you have additional questions or concerns or simply need to talk, please email me directly or make an appointment. I’m here for you.

Here is President Hanlon and Provost Dever’s address to the community, email sent 1/29/17:

To all members of the Dartmouth community:

On Friday, January 27, President Donald Trump issued an executive order related
to immigration from specific countries. The executive order includes a
provision suspending immigrant and nonimmigrant entry to the U.S. for
individuals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. It is our
understanding that it applies to individuals with a temporary visa status in
the U.S. (F-1, J-1, H-1B, etc.), permanent residence in the U.S., and possibly
to individuals with dual citizenship (citizenship in a listed country and
another, third country). The order calls for a 90-day suspension, but that time
period could be extended. A federal District Court judge issued an injunction
on Saturday, January 28, that has suspended parts of the order temporarily.

Our Office of Visa and Immigration Services strongly recommends that foreign
nationals from the seven countries listed above avoid all international travel,
including to Canada, for the time being. We are working closely with students
and faculty who have been affected by this action.

Dartmouth is a global institution. This community is home to more than 900
international students and more than 200 international faculty, scholars, and
staff. Dartmouth’s commitment to the free and open exchange of ideas, global
research, and education manifests itself in dozens of partnerships and in
international study and exchange programs. Our engagement with the full human
diversity of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences is critical–to both
the strength of the Dartmouth community and the effectiveness of Dartmouth’s
learning and leadership. We recognize, value, and celebrate the essential
contributions of our international students and scholars.

On Saturday, the Association of American Universities issued a statement that
we fully support calling for the repeal of the executive order. The text of the
statement is available at http://www.aau.edu/news/article.aspx?id=18366.

These events have understandably generated great anxiety and confusion across
our campus, and are very troubling. The College will continue to monitor the
evolving situation, and provide information and support to the members of our
community who may be affected.  Thanks to each and every one of you for pulling
together as a community during this time of need.

Sincerely,
Phil Hanlon, President
Carolyn Dever, Provost
