President Marbach: GCU Supports International Students

Seventh Street Golden Gate

Dear GCU International Students,
Today we received the good news that a federal directive that would have posed problems for our international students is no longer an issue. Georgian Court University is home to students, like you, proudly representing countries around the world. We value the talent and varied perspectives you bring to GCU and to the United States, which is made stronger by attracting some of the best and brightest minds from across the globe.

As we plan for Fall 2020, you can be assured that we are putting students first. International students are an important part of the GCU family, and I look forward to your continued success—on campus and online—during the 2020-2021 academic year.

Please continue to be in touch with Laura Grodewald, director of global education programs and our campus PDSO, with questions and concerns as we approach the start to our fall semester.


Joseph R. Marbach, Ph.D.
