President Donald Trump signed an executive order on January 27, 2017, titled “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The following is a statement from Park University President Greg Gunderson in response to the executive order.
"At Park University, we are fortunate to be able to welcome students from all over the world. We value the diversity that international students bring to our classrooms, to our everyday discussions and to our day-to-day living. We know that our educational experiences are enriched when they are infused with the perspectives of people who have experienced life in other parts of the world. We treasure the global network of friendships that begin at Park University, not only on a personal level, but within the broader context that progress toward peace is made when we feel connected to one another as human beings. Park University’s 141-year commitment to put students’ needs first remains firm."
