On Monday, UNT President Smatresk sent a letter to the UNT community expressing his concern about the international students that may be impacted by President Trump’s Executive Order. I want to emphasize what President Smatresk said – at IELI we are dedicated to your safety and security and to helping you succeed at the university. We are doing everything we can to support all of you.

If anyone has any questions related to immigration, please see the advisors at ISSS in Marquis Hall 110 or see their website for up to date information on developments. 

At IELI we welcome international students from all cultural backgrounds, religions, and countries.  All the faculty and staff of IELI appreciate working with such a culturally rich group of students every day. You are an inspiration for all of us. We want to help you meet your goals so you can become the international leaders of the future. You are all welcome here. You know this is your home. If you have friends or family who are planning to study in the U.S., encourage them to come to IELI.

If you have any questions, feel free to come see me in Marquis 145.
