AAU Joins Letter Highlighting Priority Regulatory Changes For Biden Administration

AAU on joined ACE, APLU, and 44 other higher education associations on a letter to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to highlight priority regulatory action the administration should take to modify previous executive branch actions that effect students, educators, and institutions. The associations’ requests include: reinstating Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals protections; rolling back detrimental Title IX changes; halting expanded, burdensome, and unneeded reporting requirements; terminating several politically-motivated investigations; withdrawing the June 2020 interim final rule that restricts students’ eligibility to receive CARES Act funding. These changes will help “ensure that federal policy works to benefit the millions of students, faculty, and staff in our nation’s colleges and universities,” the letter concludes.
