Today, the government rescinded its July 6 policy that aimed to force international students studying remotely to leave the country.
While Georgetown & SCS were ready to present working solutions to keep our students here, I am relieved by the decision.

To our international students, I'm deeply sorry for the stress and range of emotions you may have felt over the last couple of weeks. You belong here and will always be welcome here at Georgetown.

Many of us are angry, hurting, and grieving, but we encourage you to channel your emotions into a willingness to support one another, listen to one another, and learn from one another.

Blackout Tuesday is in effect today to encourage us to take time away from posting content and feeding the social media landscape, and to think about what we can do to make real, actionable change around racism and supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. If you choose to participate, please remember to use the #BlackoutTuesday hashtag and NOT #BlackLivesMatter as we don't want to bury valuable resources and information that use that specific hashtag.
