California’s Private Colleges Have Plenty of Room

California’s Private Colleges Have Plenty of Room

February 21, 2018

Devorah Lieberman, president of the University of La Verne (CA), and Kristen Soares, president of the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities, write: The nearly 80 private nonprofit colleges and universities in California must be part of the solution. They already award more than 20 percent of all undergraduate degrees and more than 50 percent of graduate degrees statewide. These schools have the capacity to serve more students, and are ready to forge partnerships with the public sector.

Thomas J. Botzman, president of Misericordia University (PA). writes: As part of the HEA revision, the National Association for Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) has proposed allowing students to receive their typical federal aid, or perhaps even the aid and a $300 bonus during their first two years in school. During their junior and senior years of study, however, the federal government would double the Pell Grant and the college or university would be required to match the extra federal funds.

Stephen V. Sundborg, president of Seattle University (WA) writes: I have come to view white privilege as the unconscious mindset and behavior of white people in America that favors our well-being, gives us the benefit of the doubt, and supports us disproportionately by education, economic opportunity, legal help and through our view of American history. As Michael Eric Dyson writes in the book “Tears We Cannot Stop: A Sermon to White America,” it is as if whites always enjoy a home-court advantage in all aspects of living. White privilege hurts blacks, but also hurts whites in our humanity.
