“Texas Christian University has a longstanding history of encouraging global awareness and cultural understanding – with programs designed to advance knowledge, broaden perspectives and make a positive and sustainable difference in the world,” Chancellor Victor Boschini said in an email. “We recognize the value of our international students, faculty and staff in bringing those aspirations to life. Much is yet to be learned about the full reach and impact of these federal changes, and TCU’s goal, as always, is to act with the best interests of our campus community in mind.”
TCU is among a list of universities that have responded to the travel ban. The American Association of Universities issued a statement Monday that recognized the need for national security, but urged the administration to lift the ban as soon as possible.
TCU faculty and staff are also planning a march “in solidarity” of those affected by the ban that will take place on Thursday.
