The court case Washington Alliance of Technology Workers v. Department of Homeland Security seeks to discontinue the Optional Practical Training (OPT) program, particularly post completion OPT and STEM OPT. A decision in the case against OPT could also put other forms of F-1 employment authorization at risk. Join us for a discussion of the case, an explanation of how the higher education community and NAFSA are working to defend OPT, and how you and your institution can join the effort. No government officials will participate in this event.
