Week of "Phil" Activities

Faculty and Staff Colleagues:

Next week we celebrate our generous UI donors with an annual series of campus-wide events highlighting the impact of their philanthropy ("Phil") and raising awareness on campus about the importance of private support in our public university.

Instead of just one "Phil's Day" this year, we've planned a weeklong series of events--and I hope you will join in! (See below for event details.)

New Executive Order

President Trump signed an executive order today that will impact visa processing abroad for international students and scholars, and will also impact some faculty, staff, and students traveling abroad. The new order becomes effective March 16, 2017.

For citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen:

Ban on entry to the U.S.: the executive order bans entry for at least 90 days for nationals from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen.
