As I See It: Income Tax Proposals Would Hurt Colleges, Students and Community

As I See It: Income Tax Proposals Would Hurt Colleges, Students and...

November 29, 2017

Richard Doherty, president of the Association for Independent Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts (AICUM), writes:  One of the most overlooked facts about the Republican tax bills currently pending before Congress is just how damaging they will be to higher education and millions of students across the U.S. The legislation hurts students who borrow money for higher education, colleges and universities that raise funds for scholarships and tuition assistance, and communities and states like ours that depend on higher education as an economic engine.

Tax Reform Proposals Attack Colleges and Students

Tax Reform Proposals Attack Colleges and Students

November 29, 2017

Margee Ensign, president of Dickinson College (PA), writes: As Congress wrestles with the tax reform, I along with other higher education leaders have been working diligently, contacting elected officials, and urging them to vote against a plan that would damage higher education in this country.  Many aspects of the bill would make higher education more expensive for families, even as colleges and universities are looking for ways to broaden access to education – one of the key ways for individuals to achieve economic independence.

Free Speech, Personified

Free Speech, Personified

November 28, 2017

Peter Salovey, president of Yale University (CT), writes: In recent months, visitors with controversial views have found themselves disinvited from or unable to speak on American college campuses. These struggles are often portrayed as new and radical assaults on freedom of speech. But they are not new. For decades, conservatives and liberals have argued over which speakers should be allowed to address university audiences.

Don’t Reform Taxes on the Backs of Students

Don’t Reform Taxes on the Backs of Students

Nicholas S. Zeppos, chancellor of Vanderbilt University (TN), writes:  A young woman working at NASA making space travel safer for astronauts. A young man from a small rural town who became a doctor. A new student training to be a teacher, just like the single mother who raised her.  These are just a few examples of the many individuals whose Vanderbilt University education was made possible by financial aid — aid that is currently under attack by Congress in the name of tax reform.

Tax Reform Threatens College Affordability

siaah Crawford, president of University of Puget Sound (WA), writes: Our nation’s founders were idealistic and imperfect, and they disagreed about many aspects of the new country they were forming. But on the subject of education, they and the succession of leaders who followed have been very clear: an educated citizenry is essential for a democratic society to sustain itself.
