Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff,
I would like to share the good news that, under pressure from multiple lawsuits, the federal government today dropped its plans to remove visas from international students who are taking only online courses. As a national co-chair of the Presidents’ Alliance on Higher Education and Immigration , I am happy to report that we took a leadership role in supporting the legal challenge, organizing an amicus brief that was joined by 180 colleges, universities, and institutions. Illinois Tech will continue to support all of our students and will work to ensure that we remain a welcoming campus for all.
Thank you for your continued contributions to our university.
President, Illinois Institute of Technology
