为什么要联系美国大学?
Academic degrees obtained from colleges and universities in the United States (U.S.) are considered some of the most prestigious degrees all over the world. Academic institutions that offer degrees in the U.S. attract not only domestic students, but also a considerable number of international students. Maintaining a diverse student population at U.S. colleges and universities is a benefit to all students as it provides them cross-cultural experiences and prepares them to become potential leaders in a global society. Holding a degree from a U.S. institution also provides economic and social mobility not only to U.S. students, but also international students, as well.

Due to pressure from industry leaders, the far-reaching impact of U.S. education is under threat. Certain industries are lobbying U.S. congress to pass Bill S. 386. Once Bill S. 386 is passed, it will motivate and encourage the outsourcing of labor to individuals who do not have U.S. degrees and will do so out of interest in paying them lower wages. This legislation will start in certain industries, though it is projected to expand to other industries throughout the U.S..

Passing Bill S. 386 will make all students who have degrees from U.S. colleges and universities less competitive in a global job market. Moreover, it will undermine the diversity of U.S. college and university campuses by endangering future opportunities of international students. The following YouTube video will explain what is S. 386 and its consequences.

联系美国大学校长实战
【选择学生会全体大会,因为校长面对各院系累计60多个学生代表,校长相对弱势,很难逃避提问】
我在“博士和硕士研究生全体会议”开始前,City University of New York (CUNY) Graduate Center 校长在旁边坐着,我去试探了他对于S386的口气:强烈支持我反对 S. 386
【利用校长空余的时间,试探校长口气,从而自己决定游说的角度、方式】
我问校长,我应该找谁?校长说找副校长,今天副校长也在“博士和硕士研究生全体会议”上。我说我一会能不能提问?
校长说好呀!他做演讲的时候,讲到多元化,使用强调语气并看着我。
【跟校长充分沟通清楚,确认校长支持态度,再去演双簧给副校长看】
在提问之前,我做了个铺垫:
我说现在包括City University of New York (CUNY)在内的美国大学就读的国际学生都很焦虑:就因为S. 386法案。很多国际学生都给美国的参议员们打了电话,写了邮件。我自己本人给66位目前没有支持S. 386议案的参议员写了邮件,也打了电话。
【解释自己面临的绝望,已经付出努力。暗示作为弱者,需要校长的支持、帮助,从而抬高校长领导形象】
我担心S. 386法案通过后,我在美国的学历在求职市场上没有竞争力。因为美国公司宁愿雇佣便宜的外包员工,而不愿意雇佣在美国接受高等教育的人才。
【解释清楚印度外包公司进来的印度人冲击所有在美国取得高等教育的人,其中包括在美国留学的印度人】
我提了两个问:
第一,如果S. 386法案通过了,美国公司都把工作外包给在美国没有接受高等教育的人,美国大学的学历会不会贬值?
第二,如果S. 386法案通过了,是不是损害国际学生、美国校园、移民的多样性?
【用问题进行引导,让校长自发地想清楚法案对于学校的破坏,让校长自己游说自己】
我提问完,校长说要用学校的说客,具体落实细节找副校长。
【校长动用自己的权威给副校长安排任务】
副校长说,要我给他两个工作日。我说两个工作日后,投票结果就出来了。明年国际学生办公室就可以关门了,“博士和硕士研究生全体会议”以后就只有美国人了。
【给副校长解释问题的紧急程度,以及不及时处理可能潜在的后果,同时也说给校长听获得校长支持】
我回副校长一句:我不着急。我已经尽力了。
【在校长、副校长、学生会60多个学生代表面前表现自己的软弱,博取大家的同情】

校长就当着“博士和硕士研究生全体会议”60多人的面,去压副校长了。校长、副校长都知道下周二(2019924日)投票。
以下是我跟副校长邮件的跟进:
Dear AAA,


Thank you and President BBB for meeting us at DSC meeting today.


This is Zhuo Yin. I am Program Representative for Physics and I am also aninternational student from China at GC. Right now, a lot of GC internationalstudents and international alumni are worried about Bill S386 - Fairness forHigh-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019 will pass at the senator. I wrote 66 separateemail to 66 US senators over past two days. The following email is the emailexample I wrote to New York State Senator Kirsten Gillibrand this morning.


Right now, Senator Mike Lee is going to bring S386 to the floor on nextTuesday (September 24th, 2019). Once this bill passed, it will hurt Americanuniversities and international students at these universities. I am availablefrom Monday to Sunday 7:00 am - 11:30 pm and I can collect signatures andpetitions to oppose bill S386.


I am curious about what kind of help we can get from Graduate Center or CUNY?


My cell phone number is (XXX)XXX-XXXX.

Subject: Please vote NO on Bill S386 – Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Actof 2019

To: <casework@gillibrand.senate.gov>
Dear Senator Kirsten Gillibrand,
Please vote NO on Bill S386!
Once Bill S386 passed, a lot of international students whois on H1B work visa will have to wait additional 7-8 years to get their greencard. In that case, most international students will not see opportunities topursue their career in USA. They will choose to pursue their career or schoolin UK, France, and Australia instead of USA. International students make hugecontributions to both American Universities and American economy by spending theirmoney in USA. Once this bill passed, international students will not pursuetheir study in USA, it will be horrible situation for American Universities andAmerican economy.
