Amicus Brief on Net Neutrality Submitted by ACE and Signed by MSCHE

The Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) was among the 19 higher education groups signing an amicus brief submitted on August 27, 2018, by the American Council on Education (ACE) in support of Mozilla Corporation.

The Commission’s Executive Committee supports ACE’s position that “the FCC’s Restoring Internet Freedom Order​ imperils the Internet’s continued operation as a reliable platform for research, learning, and information sharing and will make it difficult for universities and libraries to continue to provide digital content and no-fee public internet access to the communities they serve.”

“Net neutrality gets to the heart of an institution’s mission and its ability to control the information that it has access to and provides in an unfettered manner that may be a threatened by the current FCC order,” said MSCHE President Dr. Elizabeth H. Sibolski.

ACE provides amicus briefs for cases that are heard throughout the country. MSCHE had previously signed on to an amicus brief submitted by ACE in July in support of Harvard College admissions lawsuit.
