DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – Duke University’s top administrators are reminding students the school will not provide confidential records to law enforcement officials without a subpoena.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported that Duke administrators issued a statement Sunday calling President Trump’s immigration order “confusing and disturbing.”

Duke President Richard Brodhead and Provost Sally Kornbluth said in a statement that the school is committed to and enriched by the open exchange of students, scholars and ideas around the world.

The school’s leaders said they are greatly concerned about the well-being of students, faculty and staff who may be affected by Trump’s policies.

The school’s leaders say they are keeping up with developments about the order but are advising those from the seven affected countries to avoid international travel until the situation is clarified.
