Executive order on immigration impacts UW-Green Bay international students

President Trump’s executive order on immigration sparked local news coverage and had UW-Green Bay speaking up about what it could mean for students, faculty and staff. Director of the Office of International Education, Brent Blahnik, fielded most of the calls. Though there are not any visiting students enrolled at UW-Green Bay from the seven Muslim-majority countries affected (Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen), some international students and current residents who have family in those countries face uncertainty.
