APLU President Peter McPherson spoke at the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Unleashing American Innovation event last week in Washington, D.C. The event served as the launch of the agency’s Return on Investment (ROI) Initiative, which seeks to assess, streamline, and accelerate the transfer of technology to the private sector. The initiative also aims to foster greater economic and national security returns on the federal government’s annual $150 billion investment in research and development.
As graduation season draws to a close and the Student Achievement Measure’s relaunch of the #CountAllStudents campaigncontinues, APLU is seeking to collect brief stories of students on your campus who will graduate this spring, but won’t be counted in your institution’s federal graduation rate because they either transferred or attended part-time.
