Our response to the Jun. 22, 2020 federal executive order which places restrictions on certain visa categories through the end of the 2020 calendar year:

“This order is both disappointing and shortsighted. Throughout history, immigrants have made a great contribution to the U.S. economy, creating jobs and leading the way in innovation. We stand in full support of Stanford GSB’s international alumni and students. We want to be encouraging, not discouraging, these talented individuals to participate in the American economy.”
