President Schlissel Featured In Marketplace Story on Travel Ban
University of Michigan President Mark Schlissel was interviewed for a recent Marketplace story on the impact of the recent travel ban on international students and faculty. In the the interview he states, “It's that perception that we're a beacon for talented, ambitious people around the world that we can't afford to lose. When I talked to my university colleagues around the world, leaders of other universities, I comment and they agree that one of the underappreciated aspects of having international exchanges where students and faculty come here and that our students and faculty go elsewhere around the world, is it makes the world a safer place.”
