About You Are Welcome Here campaign:

You Are Welcome Here is a welcome message from U.S. higher education to international students around the world. It is a campaign designed to affirm that our institutions are diverse, friendly, safe and committed to student development. Participating institutions and organizations are communicating the message in statements, photos, videos, events and other creative expressions that feature students, faculty, and staff. The repetition of the statement, “You are welcome here,” by a broad array of people from different backgrounds--from college presidents to football players--is powerful and demonstrates that we support internationalization across our campus communities and across the country.

[3] Provide increased access to U.S. higher education for talented international students.
[4] Develop future world leaders who will advance intercultural understanding.
[5] Create a lasting legacy for the continuing benefit of international students.
