Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students:
Welcome back for the start of the spring semester. We hope it will be
an enjoyable and rewarding time for everyone.
As we begin the semester, it is important to restate the
University’s longstanding support for all members of our
community, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender,
sexual orientation, religion, citizenship, or other protected identity.
Simply stated, our goal is to ensure a campus climate in which everyone
at WSU feels welcome and safe as they live, learn, and work.
It is particularly important—in light of recent events in the
Middle East—to support our international students, scholars,
faculty, and staff, who make the world bigger and richer for all of us.
It can be anxiety-producing to be far from home, family, and
friends during times of international crisis. We want to assure
all members of our international community that the entire
WSU family is here to help in whatever ways we can. A
valuable resource is our Office of International Programs, whose
experts can provide advice about traveling abroad, immigration
policies, and related matters:
Global Services/International Programs
Bryan Hall, Room 206
Student Affairs and/or International Services staff at all
campuses are another resource to turn to for assistance.
Please join us in supporting our international colleagues.
Interim Provost and Executive Vice President
Vice President for International Programs
Acting Vice President of Student Affairs
Associate Vice President for Community, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence
