Harvard Admissions Suit Fuels Effort to Rein in Alumni Legacies

Harvard Admissions Suit Fuels Effort to Rein in Alumni Legacies

September 24, 2018

Longtime opponents of legacy college admissions that give preference to the children of alumni say they may have their best shot in almost 15 years to push Congress to act on the issue.Congress, as in 2004, is looking to update the Higher Education Act, which underpins most federal government dealings with colleges. At the same time, a high-profile affirmative action lawsuit—this time involving Harvard instead ofthe University of Michigan—is winding its way through the judicial system. Additionally, populist anger at economic inequality, which critics see as fostered by things like legacy admissions, is fueling some Democrats’ drive for changes.

When a Temporary Visa Is More Temporary than Thought

September 24, 2018

A British academic said she had to depart the U.S. quickly after her institution declined to submit paperwork to renew her temporary H-1B work visa on the grounds it likely wouldn’t be approved under standards used by the Trump administration.  Tamsyn Mahoney-Steel began a position as a digital scholarship specialist at Johns Hopkins University's (MD) libraries in 2015. Her three-year H-1B visa was to expire Aug. 31 and she said she submitted the paperwork necessary for the university to renew the visa on her behalf in June.
