UD, Goldey-Beacom react to Trump immigration order

The University of Delaware has advised students affected by travel restrictions from President Donald Trump’s executive order. 

The letter, signed by UD President Dennis Assanis and top administrators strongly urged those affected by the order listing nations such as Somalia, to not travel outside the U.S., at least for the time being. (See letter below).

UD stopped short of criticizing Trump’s controversial executive order. (See letter below).

Gary Wirt, president  of Goldey-Beacom College, Pike Creek, made the following statement on the executive order. 

“At present, we have few students from the nations listed in the order so it should have a small impact on our future recruitment of international students. If our nation is eventually seen globally as unfriendly or hostile to internationals, it could have an even greater impact in nations not listed in the executive order.  We are watching and monitoring.”
