Today’s Students Need New Policy Solutions

Recording: Today’s Students Need New Policy Solutions, Mar 4, 2019

One would assume that the federal law, which governs higher education, reflects the needs of today’s students. However, the Higher Education Act has not been updated in over a decade & the current national student body is older, working more, attending college part-time, and living off campus. Hear from current/former Congressional staffers who will craft new policies: will they reflect solutions that encourage innovation, address financial needs, and ensure students are prepared for the workforce?
