The Cruelty of ICE’s Guidance for International Students

The Cruelty of ICE’s Guidance for International Students

July 09, 2020

Brian Rosenberg, President Emeritus, Macalester College writes: The latest act of malignity is the decision on Monday by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that international students whose colleges are offering courses exclusively online as a consequence of the pandemic will not be issued student visas or otherwise be allowed to enter or remain in the United States. "Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings."

Michael T. Nietzel writes: A new analysis by Third Way reveals that many short-term certificate programs that received millions of dollars in federal CARES funding have poor track records of increasing the earnings of their students, particularly those who come from low-income backgrounds.

Why Cornell Will Reopen in the Fall

Why Cornell Will Reopen in the Fall

July 01, 2020

Michael I. Kotlikoff and Martha E. Pollack, President, Cornell University write: Colleges and universities in the U.S. face a difficult choice in the coming weeks. Some have decided that closing their campuses and offering online classes is the safest option. For others, the safer and more responsible alternative may be to allow students to return while putting in place a comprehensive virus-screening program that minimizes the risk of transmission. Contingent on New York state’s approval, we will be opening Cornell for residential instruction this fall.

Higher Education Needs Antifascism Now

Higher Education Needs Antifascism Now

July 01, 2020

Michael S. Roth, President, Wesleyan University writes: There is no neutrality with respect to the resurgent populist authoritarianism one sees in this country and in so many others. It is not enough even to say one is for freedom, or for greater equality, or for peace and justice -- for if those things are the case, one must now step up as an antifascist. This is particularly true in higher education.
