UMN Immigration Response Team

Introducing the Immigration Response Team

“The provost and I are committed to ensuring that all who are affected by any immigration policy changes will have a clear and accessible path to resources and support, and to get their questions answered in a timely fashion.”
— President Eric W. Kaler, State of The University address, March 2

Greetings from the Immigration Response Team, a collaborative resource-and-referral center housed in the Global Programs and Strategy Alliance. Convened by Provost Karen Hanson with support from multiple University units, we are a central hub for immigration questions and support and will provide outreach to the greater University community on the impact of executive orders and other policy changes, immigration regulations, and issues connected with DACA and immigration status.

The team is still taking shape, but there are many ways for you to get involved:

Help shape the work of the Immigration Response Team! A primary goal of the team is to be responsive to the needs of the University community, so we need to hear from you. Join us on April 11 to learn more about the team and share your ideas and suggestions. If you cannot make it to the event, you can still provide feedback through our online form.

We are excited to have the opportunity to provide support to the University on these important issues, and look forward to hearing your ideas for how the Immigration Response Team can best serve the University community.
