In the wake of the recent presidential executive order on immigration, the Miami University Department of English reaffirms its unwavering and unequivocal support for our international students and their families. We will do everything in our power to ensure that our international students’ civil and human rights are respected and protected. As our University Statement of Nondiscrimination states, we do not and will not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, military status, or veteran status. In our department we do not merely agree to discourage and prevent discrimination – we actively endeavor to welcome, value, and support our students, faculty, and staff from all walks of life and locations of the world.
