University representatives are working together to provide information and support to students and employees on all University campuses, including Montgomery and Beckley, through an information session and resources. These efforts are ongoing and we will continue to keep students and employees apprised of the Executive Order and what that means for the members of our community.
“The University takes the Executive Order very seriously and has moved quickly to assist our students and faculty who are directly impacted,” President Gee shared in a message to campus on Sunday evening.
President Gee also stated, “Our University is enriched by and appreciates the diverse talent, culture and contributions shared by our international faculty and students. With more than 115 countries represented on our Morgantown campus, the world comes to West Virginia through our doors.”
Campus President Carolyn Long adds, “There are more than 25 countries represented at WVU Tech. We value the diversity and global perspectives that our students, staff and faculty bring to the campus community, and so we are working diligently to help them understand the impacts of the order.”
Finally, President Gee reminds us “that we are One West Virginia University. As we empathize with all who are affected, let us also offer our support in every possible way. And I ask that we be mindful of each other, and that we continue to treat each other with respect, with civility and with the dignity that every human being deserves.”
