ACE Experts Available to Discuss Fisher Case

October 05, 2012

 

​As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to hear oral arguments Oct. 10 in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin (UT), ACE President Molly Corbett Broad and ACE General Counsel Ada Meloy are available to comment on the importance of diversity at American colleges and universities and why the Supreme Court should reaffirm the constitutionality of UT's use of race and ethnicity in its admissions process.

ACE, the major coordinating body for all the nation's higher education institutions, filed an amicus brief in support of UT and both Broad and Meloy have been leading voices on this issue on behalf of the higher education community. To arrange an interview, please contact Erin Hennessy at 202-939-9367 or EHennessy@acenet.edu.
