Wintersteen statement in support of international students
In a July 7 statement, President Wendy Wintersteen shared her concern for Iowa State's international students, specifically the anxiety caused by a federal rule earlier this week that international students whose fall coursework is all online may not stay in the U.S. She said Iowa State leaders are coordinating with national higher education organizations on the issue. "We are advocating for our international students to have maximum flexibility to continue their education at ISU as we prioritize health and safety during the COVID-19 crisis," Wintersteen wrote.
