COVID-19 Crisis: The Impacts on International and Immigrant Populations in Higher Education

What Campus Leaders Need to Know and What They Can Do



The COVID-19 pandemic is upending the lives of millions of students in U.S. colleges and universities, including hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients, undocumented students, and international students. Campus leaders must find appropriate steps to support these students as they face significant legal, regulatory, economic, and social challenges to their studies and futures.

The Presidents’ Alliance is currently providing timely briefings and advocacy opportunities for our members around the immigration-related legal and regulatory issues impacting students in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also sending recommendations to the federal government on these important issues.

Learn more about the impact of COVID-19 on higher education and immigration in our past presentations, "COVID-19 Briefing: How International & Immigrant Student Populations in Higher Education are Impacted, What Campus Leaders Need to Know," "COVID-19 Crisis and the Impact on Undocumented/DACA Students and Their Families: What Campus Leaders Need to Know" and "COVID-19 Crisis and the Impact on International Populations in Higher Education and Beyond."
