President Addresses Government Actions


Iona College President Joseph E. Nyre shared a letter with the campus community today, addressing issues around recent actions by the U.S. government.  

"In this tumultuous political environment, it is challenging for us to grapple with all of the implications of the executive orders issued by President Trump in the last week," President Nyre wrote. "It is clear that while we certainly wish our nation to be safe, the executive order banning the entry into the United States of citizens from seven countries, suspending the refugee program for 120 days, and halving the number of refugees the United States accepts is in opposition to our identity as an institution in the tradition of American Catholic Higher Education."
