JMU's Support of Our International Community

James Madison University recognizes the inherent value and dignity of every Duke.   We are home to many students and faculty who come from around the world and we all benefit from their energy, spirit, and diverse backgrounds.  President Alger has issued this statement following the January 2017 Executive Order that first instituted a travel ban, reiterating our support of all international students, faculty, and staff. Especially during a time when national policies are creating difficulties for many international visitors, JMU wants everyone to understand that #YouAreWelcomeHere.
