Florida Atlantic University wants its students and staff to know it’s keeping an eye on President Trump’s executive order that temporarily bars entry to the U.S. for citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries and refugees from around the world.

FAU President John Kelly’s  Office of the President blog  posted this Tuesday:

Every day at FAU we enjoy a diverse culture that comes from the fact that students from more than 180 countries attend our university. We also enjoy a diverse faculty and staff.

Last Friday, President Trump issued an Executive Order regarding immigration that may affect members of the university community. This issue remains fluid and we are closely monitoring the situation.

You can read the most recent available information if you  click here . We will update the information as it becomes available.

Additional information is available at the  Center for Global Engagement  and at FAU’s  Counseling and Psychological Services  and  Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs .

The environment of diversity and inclusion we have cultivated across our six campuses is one of the most unique and wonderful aspects about FAU. We stand together in celebration of our differences, and we value every member of our faculty, staff and student body.
