Higher Education Under Attack

Question: What does immigration and education have in common?

Answer: They both affect the standing of the United States in the global economy

So, to address the “elephant in the room”, the proposed immigration policies that we are grappling with at present have an enormous domino effect on our country, our citizens and our higher educational system. To be blunt, it is dangerous.

Even if we set aside the recruiting messaging that our enemies have been given to secure more individuals with the intent on destroying our way of life in the United States, we are left with issues related to true citizens being suspect just for being who they are in terms in religion, name or ethnicity.  Nothing and no one is immune from the fallout of these proposed policies which includes higher education.

Graduate schools of business can function only when there is a strong tuition and alumni income. Students who would come to the United States for education are considering their options in Canada and the UK now. And graduates who have contributed financially may re-consider their giving plans. As a result, the anticipated revenue to keep operations at a high level will be compromised.

Moreover some members of both faculty and staff, who are crucial the success of the school, could be kept from activities abroad for fear of not being allowed to return. And of course, the options for recruiting faculty and staff are diminished.

We at Meridian University Solutions recognize the challenges you are facing and stand ready to be supportive with options designed to make the way you work with your students effective and efficient. Let us know how we can help.
