Serving as Champions of Diversity and Inclusion

February 27, 2017

Elizabeth Stroble, president of Webster University (MO), writes: For a host of reasons, not the least of which is we are honoring the tradition of Black History Month, it is timely to consider our collective commitment to the core values of diversity and inclusion. For those of us in St. Louis, we know that the events of 2014 in Ferguson and surrounding communities triggered an assessment and re-examination of our policies, practices and attitudes, followed by unprecedented investments of support and funding.

College Grant Proposal Cuts Reflect Poor Policy

College Grant Proposal Cuts Reflect Poor Policy

February 21, 2017

Thomas Botzman, president of Misericordia University (PA), writes: Sadly, the proposed state budget for fiscal 2017-18 cuts IAG funding by $13 million, generating modest savings at the state level in a move that I believe is contrary to the best interests of students and taxpayers. The allocation of IAG funds to private colleges and universities is based on the number of low- and moderate-income students they serve. Therein lies the beauty of this funding mechanism, as spending on IAG for private higher education has a means test to assure that private higher education provides access to the benefit of the public good.
