Washington, DC – Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) President Peter McPherson today released the following statement regarding the reintroduction of the bipartisan College Transparency Act in the House and Senate.
“The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) thanks Senators Cassidy, Warren, Scott, and Whitehouse and Representatives Mitchell, Krishnamoorthi, Stefanik, and Harder for the reintroduction of the College Transparency Act. This legislation would empower students as consumers through better data on how well students at colleges and universities fare. It would also provide schools with the information they need to better assess their programs and take steps to further improve the success of their students. The reauthorization of Higher Education Act presents the perfect opportunity to incorporate the CTA to fill the major holes in higher education data that have been allowed to exist for far too long.”
