A Message from President Drake regarding immigration executive order

On Friday, an Executive Order was signed that restricted individuals from seven countries from entering the United States. This order has broad implications for many, including those in our Ohio State community.

Yesterday and this morning, we have worked actively and directly with elected representatives to do everything we can to clarify this situation and move forward to a rapid and just resolution, and we will continue to keep the university community informed. Ohio State joins our colleagues -- including those represented in the Association of American Universities and Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities -- in concern over the effects of this policy.

We are compiling information about additional resources available to students, faculty and staff who have questions and concerns, and we will share that information shortly.
