FHSU Director of University Relations and Marketing Lisa Karlin issued a statement this Tuesday on President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning entry to the United States from seven countries.
Fort Hays State University is reviewing the effects on our university family of President Trump’s executive order temporarily banning entry to the United States for people from the following countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.
Our initial review does not show any students from these seven countries. However, we are reviewing faculty and staff who may be working under a green card from one of these countries as well as pending incoming students.
FHSU’s immediate concern is to reach out to all students, faculty and staff who may be affected and work with them. We encourage our international family members to contact the following for any concerns or questions:
Students – (785) 628-4176
Faculty – (785) 628-4233
Study abroad trips – (785) 628-4782
Global partnerships – (785) 628-5834
As a university with a large global connection, we are working with members of our international family to continue our productive and formative relationships. We believe that our faculty, staff, and students are enriched by their interactions with people throughout the world and value the diversity and exchange of ideas that are the result.

Trump’s immigration ban has raised a variety of legal questions while protests have emerged around the country. Only time will tell the full impact on local communities.
