Many of us are still reeling from the events that transpired last weekend, which have continued to unfold throughout the week. At Fletcher, we value and respect all members of our community, and we are committed to protecting the international members of our community, regardless of national origin, religion or citizenship status. These are fundamental principles of The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, and of Tufts University as a whole.
These recent actions force us to consider our principles as a nation, and ask ourselves: what do we stand for today and what will we stand for moving forward? I wanted to share with you my recent op-ed in The Boston Globe, which explores this topic and encourages President Trump to revoke his executive orders.

Dean James Stavridis is the 12th leader of The Fletcher School since its founding in 1933. A retired Admiral in the U.S. Navy, he led the NATO Alliance in global operations from 2009 to 2013 as Supreme Allied Commander.
