Immigration Executive Order

January 30, 2017

To the UW community:

The University of Wyoming is inclusive and committed to internationalization and globalization in education and research. We have a strong history of welcoming students, scholars, faculty and staff from around the world and have many working and learning on our campus today.

On Friday, Jan. 27, President Trump signed an executive order that impacts the immigration procedures for individuals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The university is aware of one student who was scheduled to arrive at UW to join a graduate program but was unable to travel as planned. We are working to determine if any UW students, scholars, faculty or staff currently traveling outside of the U.S. may be impacted when they are scheduled to return.

For students, scholars, faculty and staff who are citizens of these seven countries, including individuals with dual citizenship, or who otherwise may be affected by the executive order, you should understand that should you decide to leave the United States, regardless of the reason or length of your trip, before the Departments of State and Homeland Security issue new guidelines, you may not be able to return to the United States. We encourage you to contact the International Students and Scholars Office ( or by phone 307-766-5193) for assistance if you have concerns about the impact this executive order may have on you, on any pre-arranged travel, or prior to making any future travel arrangements.

The university remains committed to global engagement and will work to keep our international students, scholars, faculty and staff informed as new developments occur.

Laurie Nichols, President
