Sanctuary … and Other Notes from the "NEJHE" Beat …
Harney, John O.
New England Journal of Higher Education, Nov 2016
How will higher education fare under a President Donald Trump? According to this author, the campaign's misogyny shouldn't sit well with a student body that is now majority female, its disavowal of climate changes won't impress research universities, and the xenophobia won't help economies and cultures bolstered by foreign enrollment. The number of foreign students in the U.S topped 1 million in 2015-16. But experts worry that Trump's election could dampen foreign enrollment as 9/11 had done 15 years ago. Here at home, "college Canada" and "university Canada" were searched more than twice as much in the U.S. on the day after the election than on any other day in the past five years, according to Google. Many college student greeted Trump's election with walkouts. California State University, America's largest public university, reaffirmed Nov. 16 that it would not help with deportations. Several in New England have explored seeking "sanctuary" status for immigrants, a designation the Trump campaign pledged to end.
