Toronto – The Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto has been monitoring the impact on the recent travel restrictions enacted by the US Executive Order.

“We are very proud of our diverse and inclusive academic community of students, staff and faculty here at the Rotman School and we will certainly support our international students and faculty who may be impacted,” says Dean Tiff Macklem. “One of our core values is that we are committed to welcoming people from around the world based on their talent and skills regardless of their place of birth, religion, gender, and sexual orientation.”

Additionally, consistent with University of Toronto policies and standards, and Canadian immigration and employment laws, the Rotman School is exploring how it may be able to assist the broader academic community of scholars and students of business and management.

The Rotman School realizes the extent of the disruption is still being determined, but is exploring how it can help fellow faculty and students who are affected by the travel restrictions. Affected colleagues and students may contact Prof. Joshua Gans.
