Statement by ACE President Ted Mitchell on the Department of Justice Dismissing Lawsuit Against Yale University
February 03, 2021

“We applaud the Department of Justice for dropping this unwarranted and politically motivated lawsuit. Colleges and universities that are clearly following the law should not have to fear expensive and time-consuming legal assaults from the federal government.

We are optimistic that this sends a strong signal that the Department of Justice will continue to recognize the importance of allowing higher education institutions to follow the law of the land and consider race as one factor in a holistic admissions review.”​
