ICE says international students must participate in in-person classes in order to remain in the United States. Connecticut State College and University System President Mark Ojakian says if Western, Central, Southern or Central moves to online-only education but chooses to leave residence halls open, international students would be evicted from student housing, and forced to finish the semester from their home country, where they may or may not have the infrastructure and resources to complete their coursework. Ojakian says international students, in many cases, go on to live, work, and raise a family in Connecticut. He says the federal administration’s decision to specifically target them is antithetical to the mission and offensive to him personally. Ojakian says the CSCU system will evaluate all legal options and take whatever steps possible to defend international students.
