  • Alia Wong at The Atlantic reports: Colleges Face Growing International Student-Visa Issues
    Amid tightening immigration restrictions, higher-education institutions find themselves swamped with paperwork. How is your institution handling it? Does it have ramifications in your area of administration?

    Some schools are being especially proactive in their efforts to assist international students. In January 2017, just days after Trump’s inauguration, NYU created (in partnership with its law school)—the Immigrant Defense Initiative, which offers “free, confidential advice and representation” to students and staff who may be at risk for deportation. Other schools, including Columbia University, the California State University system, and George Washington University, have also established free immigration-related legal services for students.
