Rapid Response Briefing: Proposed Rule to End Duration of Status for International Students and Exchange Visitors

This rapid response briefing addressed the proposed rule to end duration of status for F-1 international students and J exchange visitors and their families. The briefing covered the impact of the proposed rule, why it matters, and what campus leaders can do now. If finalized without change, the proposed rule would constitute the largest changes to regulation of international students and scholars in 20 years, and result in further declines of international students to the U.S. The briefing featured legal immigration experts, crucial campus voices, and policy experts.
