Many international students are experiencing elevated stress and concerns due to a proposed rule by the Department of Homeland Security that would affect duration of stay and a new regulation impacting the H-1 B Visa Program. Many also have concerns related to the election and increased incidents of bias, xenophobia, and racism. In this faculty roundtable, sponsored by the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity and the Graduate School, panelists discuss how international scholars can be supported during this stressful time.
