Heller, the provost, wrote in a letter sent individually to all incoming and returning Chinese students. “These comments have suggested that Chinese students come to this country to steal technical information and bring it back to China. We are saddened by this rhetoric and want to make certain you know that it does not express the views of USF or the majority of Americans.”

Heller posted the full letter on social media (below).
