Resources available to UTA community members from areas affected by travel ban

  UTA logo  

With the recent White House executive order temporarily banning entry into the United States of citizens from several nations, UTA strongly urges those from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen not to travel outside the U.S. at this time.

Several resources are available to members of the UTA family affected by or concerned about this situation.

The UTA campus community is committed to maintaining the inclusive and collaborative environment that defines UTA. As the fifth most diverse college campus in the nation, we treasure the ethnic and cultural richness that makes UTA unique. LEARN MORE.

The contributions of Herrmann, who died in January 2015, and Thompson were honored with a plaque commemorating their efforts in the Chemistry and Physics Building's lobby, directly across from the planetarium entrance.
