MSCHE Signs DACA Amicus Brief

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) was among the 44 higher education groups signing an amicus brief submitted on October 4, 2019, by the American Council on Education (ACE) urging the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold the legality of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

The decision by the Commission’s Executive Committee lended support to the position that that the rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) policy will negatively impact America’s institutions of higher education, their students, and the global standing and reputation of the country’s colleges and universities. Oral arguments are set for November 12, 2109.

ACE serves as a unifying representative for higher education on legal issues and federal court cases, including at the U.S. Supreme Court. MSCHE has previously signed on to an amicus briefs submitted by ACE in support of Harvard (Students for Fair Admissions, Inc., v. Harvard) and Net Neutrality (Mozilla Corporation et al. v. Federal Communications Commission and United States of America).
