Getting Help and Support

Stanford is offering a range of support services for those with needs and questions about immigration issues. The Bechtel International Center can connect members of the campus community to legal assistance, drawing on expanded staffing in the Immigrants’ Rights Clinic of Stanford Law School. Informational sessions, expanded counseling services, online travel guidance and emergency financial support are among the other services being made available.
