As members of Congress undertake reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA), APLU has developed a series of higher education policy proposals we ask Congress to consider. APLU strongly believes Congress should prioritize college access, affordability, and student success and completion with creative and sound proposals, including a meaningful federal-state government partnership. Public colleges and universities must be front and center for our nation to build a globally-competitive workforce and provide ladders of economic mobility for students from low-income families. For that to be possible, however, it is critical that federal policies ensure support for our public colleges and universities, so that they may remain accessible, affordable, and continue to offer world-class quality education.
