Universities fight back

International students taking online-only courses at U.S. colleges could be deported after a rule change announced by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement this week, which prompted Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to file a lawsuit Wednesday against the Department of Homeland Security agency. “The announcement disrupts our international students’ lives and jeopardizes their academic and research pursuits,” MIT President L. Rafael Reif, said in a letter to MIT’s student body. Students at the University of California, meanwhile, may organize a student-run class that would meet in person, outdoors, to help international students meet the in-person class requirement for the fall semester. Betsy Foresman reports on how the new policy may affect universities.
