Could Senate Higher Ed Rewrite Expand Data Collection?

February 06, 2018

Advocates are hoping a decade-old federal ban on tracking certain information about college students could get rolled back as senators rewrite the federal higher education law. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), the education committee's chairman, has resisted efforts to broaden data collected about students, but advocates say there are too many lawmakers, both Democratic and Republican, pushing the change for Alexander not to consider it.

Giving to Colleges Up 6% in 2017

The most recent "Giving USA," which covered 2016, saw only a 1.4 percent uptick in private support. (Most institutions in the new Voluntary Support of Education survey, conducted by the Council for Aid to Education, end their fiscal years in June.)
