USC joined 30 other colleges and universities to encourage the U.S. Supreme Court to reject the federal travel ban affecting international students, faculty and staff from six countries. The institutions argued that the international populations are vital to the culture and community on campuses across the United States.
From the amicus brief:
The University of Southern California (“USC”) is, and has always been, a global university. As the university that traditionally hosts the largest number of international students among all universities, these scholars add great value to our richly diverse campus community. We support efforts to ensure all of our scholars, regardless of their national origin or religious affiliation, can continue to study, research, and teach at our university.
