Michael J. Garanzini, S.J., president of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universitiesm writes: It makes a great deal of sense to get students back on track after a challenging year of losses and struggle. Do we really want to make attaining a college degree more difficult for young people who are already feeling concerned about the future of their lives and our country? Putting the opportunity for an education into the hands of young people is one way of saying that we believe in their ability to make this country a better place for all. Supporting those colleges and universities with a track record for genuine care—those that offer a holistic education and cultivate the intellect, imagination, psyche and spirit—makes public policy sense.
