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 regarding the January 27th Executive Order, reiterating our support of international students, faculty, and staff.  This webpage will be updated with appropriate information as it becomes available. 

September 24, 2017 Update:  President Trump signed a Presidential Proclamation which removed Sudan as a country under the travel ban, but added Chad, North Korea, and certain citizens of Venezuela.  Details about the Proclamation can be found below.
