At the closing session of the annual meeting, APLU unveiled a report examining the need for public universities to renew their commitment to addressing student and workforce needs.
In early November, lawmakers in the House and Senate introduced legislation, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, aimed at reforming the nation’s tax code. APLU President Peter McPherson sent a letter to all members of Congress outlining how a number of the provisions in the House and Senate bills would negatively impact students and seriously diminish public universities’ ability to fulfill their teaching, research, and community engagement missions.
APLU would like to thank the following sponsors for their generous support of the 2017 APLU Annual Meeting.
