Graduate students, U. react to proposed DHS rule limiting student visas

“By taking their talent, labour and research agendas to US universities, international students contribute to the research output of the US and to its global reputation for educational excellence,” Gordon-Smith wrote. 

In an interview with the ‘Prince,’ PGSU expressed hopes that “the University steps up … not just rhetorically but materially” to “support international students right now, not by further marginalizing them or making this out to be an issue that can be dealt with through rhetoric, through emails and through statements, but by actually making this type of concrete commitment that treats international students as an equally integral part of this community as domestic students.”
