Higher Education Budget Unfair, Misguided

Higher Education Budget Unfair, Misguided

February 16, 2017

Dr. Thomas Flynn, president of Alvernia University (PA), and Dr. Lex McMillan, president of Albright College (PA), write:  Gov. Tom Wolf warned that this would be a tough budget year. We sympathize. Every year is a tough budget year at our institutions, Alvernia University and Albright College. We must enhance the quality of our students' education while controlling costs and reallocating limited resources.  Fortunately, guiding this challenging work for us are two sacred principles: to increase student financial aid annually to ensure our schools remain places of opportunity for students with modest financial resources; and to invest in improvements with maximum benefit for our students.

Private Colleges Matter to WV Students, Future

Private Colleges Matter to WV Students, Future

February 15, 2017

Edwin H. Welch, president of University of Charleston (WV), writes: Taken collectively, the eight private colleges in West Virginia are the third largest higher education nonprofit in the state, behind West Virginia University and Marshall University. They employ 2,270 individuals and have a combined operating budget of $200 million. That means an economic impact in West Virginia of about $425 million.

Solidarity with Foreign Students and Faculty Members

Solidarity with Foreign Students and Faculty Members

Dr. Steven R. DiSalvo, president of Saint Anselm College (NH), writes: In response to last week's White House executive order entitled "Protecting the Nation from Terrorist Entry into the United States," we as leaders at colleges and universities have had to take decisive action to protect our foreign students and faculty members and to allay the fears of the many domestic students who travel overseas to study.

Cuomo Tuition Plan Could Hurt NY Economies

Cuomo Tuition Plan Could Hurt NY Economies

February 10, 2017

Andrew Roth, interim president of St. Bonaventure University (NY), writes:  Imagine Houghton without Houghton or Ithaca without Ithaca. Elmira without Elmira or Utica without Utica. Now imagine Allegany and Olean without St. Bonaventure.  For all the hand-wringing private college officials in the state are doing, and justifiably so, about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposal to provide free tuition to all SUNY and CUNY colleges, the vastly underplayed story is the devastating impact the initiative could have on small cities and towns in New York.

My ‘Dear Betsy’ Letter

My ‘Dear Betsy’ Letter

February 09, 2017

Brian Rosenberg, President, Macalester College writes: The notion that President Trump’s secretary of education would reach out for advice to the president of Macalester College is preposterous, like imagining that the Patriots would rally from a 25-point deficit in the Super Bowl or that the president of the United States would gratuitously insult, say, Australia. Couldn’t happen. Still, it doesn’t hurt to dream, so here is the counsel I would offer to the newly confirmed secretary, Betsy DeVos.
