Thomas J. Botzman, President, Misericordia University writes: On the community college side, the current Pell Grant and other federal aid cover much, if not all, of the cost at these two-year institutions. The “last dollar in” approach taken by many states reduces the cost to the state. However, in reality it provides more funding to the wealthier student and less to the student with financial challenges. The result is that in several states, such as Louisiana, about one-half of the aid goes to families with income greater than $100,000, according to the report.

Hosting Debate Shows School’s, Region’s Influence

Hosting Debate Shows School’s, Region’s Influence

Otterbein University President John Comerford writes:  As people have shared their enthusiasm that Otterbein University is hosting Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate, my response has been that we are grateful for the honor but not surprised. While that is, admittedly, a boast on Otterbein, it is just as big a boast on Westerville and central Ohio.

A Powerful Message

A Powerful Message

Gettysburg College (PA) President Robert W. Iuliano writes: Last week, a federal court in Boston issued a powerful and comprehensive decision affirming Harvard University’s right to admit a diverse student body through the consideration of race in admissions. I served as Harvard’s general counsel until July 2019 and applaud the court’s decision. It can be rare to find consensus on any issue in higher education, but the case against Harvard touched on a central and broadly shared belief: the quality of the education we offer our students is improved by admitting a diverse student body.

Dr. Forrest E. Harris, Sr., president of American Baptist College (TN), writes:  In 1999, the opportunity of a lifetime occurred. Following the mentorship of the icon of the Civil Rights Movement and nonviolent protests, Dr. Bernard Lafayette, the surprising prospect of becoming president of American Baptist College meant following in his footsteps. For 20 years, I’ve served this institution with honor and an unwavering commitment to its social justice legacy. There were challenges, deficits, and days when we did not know how we would make it. For all those days, we are thankful.
