International Studies Program's Response to Executive Order 13950

The International Studies program is committed to inclusive teaching, advising, and mentoring. Achieving this requires identifying and challenging the systemic inequalities which shape our lives, our university and the global contexts and issues about which we teach. We thus join the University of Iowa College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Faculty Senate, and other campus governance bodies in condemning efforts—including and beyond those made by Executive Order—to restrict our academic freedom by curtailing anti-racist and social justice-oriented teaching and praxis.
