There is an opportunity for you to send questions in advance, and there will be time in the briefing for additional questions.

This one hour briefing will feature immigration legal and policy experts who will address the issues affecting international populations in higher education and beyond to the workplace due to the COVID-19 crisis. The briefing will also feature the perspectives of senior campus leaders in a discussion moderated by one of the leading journalists engaged in international education issues, and advocacy and action steps that campuses can take now. Resource materials will be provided.
