History Department Statement on Immigration & Travel Ban

The faculty of the Department of History of the University of California San Diego would like to express our dismay over the immigration and travel ban enacted by the President of the United States on January 27, 2017. International collaboration and exchange are necessary for strong scholarship and intellectual inquiry. We wish to affirm our support and appreciation for all instructors, scholars and students who may be adversely impacted by the executive order. If you are in need of assistance or resources concerning visa status, travel or immigration, please see the following webpage provided by the International Center: http://ispo.ucsd.edu/policyupdates.html.
