Higher ed leaders criticize claim Chinese propaganda sways view of visa process

Aug 3, 2019 by

  • A senior state department official said the U.S. welcomes Chinese students, but colleges should take steps to help them “live, study and eat alongside their American and international peers” to stave off efforts by China to negatively impact their views of the U.S.
  • The comments — made by Marie Royce, assistant secretary of state for educational and cultural affairs, at an event in Washington — underscore the ongoing trade war with China. She blamed misinformation by the Chinese government for a negative view of the U.S. visa process.
  • Royce’s speech drew mixed reactions from higher ed observers. Some took issue with her effective denial of visa delays. Others said her message should be reflected in policy and action, such as by making visa processes more efficient.
