Together We Can

After more than a year of disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has never been clearer that we can all achieve more when we work together. Let’s celebrate ACE’s rich history of bringing the higher education community together to foster big changes, support important causes, and make higher education more attainable.

Together we can champion equity, secure a path to citizenship, advocate for doubling the Pell Grant, strengthen campus mental health, support international students, and improve global relationships.
Now, more than ever, we must come together because Together We Can.

Bolster Equity by Advocating to Double the Pell Grant

Pell Grants helps millions of low- and moderate-income students attend and complete college annually. ACE is proud to be part of a national campaign to double the maximum Pell Grant to $13,000 and help more students earn degrees, get well-paying jobs, and achieve brighter futures.

Secure a Path to Citizenship for Dreamers

ACE applauds the creation of a process by which immigrants who arrived in the U.S. at a young age could apply for conditional residency leading to permanent residency. ACE advocates on behalf of Dreamers, urging Congress to pass legislation to grant them permanent legal status and other protections.
