How to Get Involved
The Congressional Independent Colleges Caucus, launched
in February 2017, offers Members of Congress an opportunity to both celebrate and advance the diversity of the nation's private, nonprofit colleges and universities, and learn about the challenges and issues these institutions face.


The Caucus serves as an informal group of Members dedicated to addressing the issues related to private, nonprofit colleges and the students they serve, while educating colleagues on the issues facing independent colleges and universities. 

The Caucus, after being relaunched in the 116th Congress under the direction of new co-chairs Rep. Martha Roby (AL-2) and Rep. Derek Kilmer (WA-6), has grown to 73 members.
