Earlham President David Dawson and the Presidents of all the Great Lakes Colleges Association member colleges signed a letter from the American Council on Education (ACE) to the Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly on maintaining the United States as the Destination of Choice for Students and Scholars.
“We support efforts to enhance the nation’s security. We also believe that it is in our collective interest to ensure that the United States remains the destination of choice for the world’s best and brightest students, faculty and scholars.
“The roughly one million international students that attend U.S. colleges and universities add to this country’s intellectual and cultural vibrancy, and they also yield an estimated economic impact of $32.8 billion and support 400,000 U.S. jobs, according to recent estimates.”
