CU Denver joins effort to tell international students they are valued

December 6, 2017

CU Denver has joined a nationwide higher-education campaign called “You Are Welcome Here” to show how our university supports and values international students.

Temple University made the first video in November 2016 after being inspired by Study Groups’ usage of the hashtag #YouAreWelcomeHere. Today there are more than 300 participating institutions and countless organizations.

To announce our involvement in the campaign, we created a video starring CU Denver faculty, staff, and students – ranging from Chancellor Dorothy Horrell to the director of Housing & Dining to the Cheer and Dance team – stating, “You are welcome here.”

Efforts like this are important to reassure students and their families that our university values them and that they are safe here – no matter the political climate.

We encourage you to share this video and help us spread this meaningful message.
