The Value Of A College Degree - Presidential Opinion

April 21, 2017

Chris Wood, President, Davis & Elkins College writes: The national tone of public criticism of higher education has sharpened recently. Many in both the public and private sectors are questioning the cost of higher education, and others are questioning its value. We are being exposed through all forms of media to predominantly negative stories about higher education. As one whose life was transformed by my collegiate experience, and now as a college president, I am a bold and proud apologist for higher education, its value and its necessity to the future of our country and the global economy.

Janet Morgan Riggs, president of Gettysburg College (PA) and chair of the board of directors of the Association of Independent Colleges & Universities of Pennsylvania, writes:  I have a keen interest in making sure that talented students of all income levels have the opportunity to attain a high quality education. While I appreciate the challenges of balancing the state budget, I am puzzled by Gov. Tom Wolf's proposal to cut the Institutional Assistance Grant (IAG) program, a program that is front and center for these student lobbyists.  These grants are distributed to private institutions based on the number of low- and moderate-income Pennsylvania students they serve.
