Penn State Global Programs To Host International Student Town Hall July 14
Penn State’s Office of Global Programs will host a virtual town hall at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14 in response to new policy changes affecting international students.
The university plans to answer questions regarding U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s announcement that international students taking a fully remote course load this fall may be deported.
Global Programs will be joined by President Eric Barron and five other Penn State figures, including:
- Roger Brindley, vice provost for Global Programs
- Masume Assaf, director of international student and scholar advising in Global Programs
- Susan D’Amico, associate director of international student and scholar advising in Global Programs
- Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, associate dean for diversity, equity, and inclusion, a Samuel Weiss Faculty Scholar and Clinical Professor of Law, and director of Penn State’s Center for Immigrants’ Rights Clinic
- Jennifer Campbell, moderator, director of global operations and learning in Global Programs
Last week, Barron expressed Penn State is committed to doing “everything in its power” to protect international students from the enforced guidelines. Additionally, the university will take legal action to support a lawsuit challenging the federal government’s updated policy.
In the meantime, international students are encouraged to check out the list the Students Teaching Students program compiled that includes Penn State classes that will be taught in-person this fall at University Park.
