Introducing the Immigration Response Team

The Provost and I are committed to ensuring that all who are affected by any
immigration policy changes will have a clear and accessible path to resources and support,
and to get their questions answered in a timely fashion.

— President Eric Kaler

President Kaler announced the creation of the Immigration Response Team at his State of the University address in March 2017. The mission of the Immigration Response Team is to ensure that all who are affected by immigration policy changes have access to resources and support. 

Tracking Experiences with Customs and Border Protection

We would like to hear about your experiences with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) when entering the United States. This voluntary form is for anyone who has an experience they want to report, including immigrants, international students and scholars and U.S. citizens. The information will help us understand how students and staff might be affected by CBP inspections, including searches of mobile devices.
