Stanford is working to provide information and services – and to continue emphasizing the university’s support for all members of the campus community – as events continue to unfold around federal immigration policy.

A working group with representatives from across the campus is meeting regularly to coordinate the university’s response to new developments and to put in place support for emerging needs in the campus community. The working group continues to move quickly to provide information resources, legal consultation, emotional health support and financial assistance to the Stanford community.

“Since the new administration issued the immigration executive orders, we have provided know-your-rights sessions, consultations and connection to legal services for Stanford students and scholars,” said Jayashri Srikantiah, professor of law and director of the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic. “This is part of our larger effort to defend immigrants’ rights through direct legal representation, broad-scale litigation, support at airports and other efforts on behalf of immigrant communities.”
