Message: No matter where they call home – 2/1/17
Last Friday, the President of the United States signed an executive order that blocks entry to the country for refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries. This executive order has already disrupted the lives of a number of game developers, students and faculty across the country – and around the globe. While these events impact each individual, business, college and university in differing ways, we are committed to the pursuit of knowledge and opportunity for everyone, no matter where they call home.
We do not yet know the full ramifications of the executive order and subsequent decisions by federal judges, but we support those affected. Community and diversity are among our core values and are integral to our commitment to inclusion and respect for all people. These principles are most important in times of strife, and we must not abandon them.
