Immigration Nerds Talk to Dr. Deborah Watkins Bruner

In last week’s Immigration Nerds podcast, we talked about the impact of ICE modifying the SEVP temporary exemptions to restrict foreign students from online courses amid COVID-19 and the agency’s reversal. However, we didn’t get a chance to discuss the important role international students play in the university system, and how they drive innovation.

We’re proud to welcome Senior Vice President of Research at Emory University, Dr. Deborah Watkins Bruner for a faculty perspective. Please note, this episode was recorded before the settlement agreement. However, we capture great insight into international students’ ongoing contributions to new discoveries in cancer research and COVID-19 vaccines.
