DINAMICS Statement in Support of International Students

International students represent a crucial part of Clemson University and the broader community of mathematical and statistical sciences. The diversity of experience and perspective they bring to our communities make us better, not only as scientists, but also as human beings.

DINAMICS stands firmly in support of international students, and strongly against the recent changes made by ICE to the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) temporary exemptions for nonimmigrant students taking online classes due to the pandemic for the fall 2020 semester. Placing students under the fear of deportation is exceedingly cruel, especially when the deportation depends on choices made by their universities for their safety and where the students have no choice in the matter.
