Response to Executive Order on Immigration

Dear Campus Community,

There are many questions about the impact of President Trump’s recent executive order, “Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” I know that many of you are concerned about the potential impact on international study, the employment of international faculty and the enrollment of international students.

As I wrote to you in November, the richness of the Colorado College community depends on the diversity of our students, staff and faculty. We value the different experiences and perspectives that each of you brings to CC and are committed to recruiting exceptionally talented people from around the globe to teach and study here. It is vital to our mission of excellence that we ensure access so students can continue their CC education, and faculty and staff maintain their rights and opportunities. 

As is the case at other colleges and universities, we do not share student records with immigration agencies nor does Campus Safety inquire about student immigration status or participate with other agencies in policing immigration. Our anti-discrimination policy forbids discrimination on the basis of national or ethnic origin, religion, and other identity attributes.

Staff from International Programs will be in touch with students who may be impacted by the order and the Department of Human Resources will reach out to faculty and staff whose visas may be affected. The college will provide support and assistance as needed.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
