URBANA, Ill. (WCIA) — More than 30 universities across the state, including UIUC, signed a letter of delegation to Congress.
It says changes to federal immigration policy are hurting their ability to recruit and keep international students.
A few of those challenges deal with delays and denials with visas that allow students to study at Illinois universities, and work in the U.S.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) ranked as the fifth largest U.S. institution hosting international students between 2018 and 2019.
