Welcoming Veterans to College Campus

Thomas J. Botzman, president of Misericordia University (PA), writes:   Given the 16 years of continuous military activity following 9/11, it is not surprising that a large number of returning veterans are looking forward to the next step in their lives. As a nation, we should always remember their individual and collective sacrifice and courage. Increasingly, higher education is taking a larger role in providing opportunities for our veterans.

The Value of Independent Sector Education

Rev. James J. Maher, president of Niagara University (NY), writes: With smaller class sizes (20 on average), meaningful engagement with faculty and mentors, real-world opportunities, smaller student bodies (60 percent of independent, not-for-profit colleges and universities in NYS enroll fewer than 2,000 students) and comparatively positive outcomes (high graduation rates and excellent employment statistics), the relative cost of going to a private college or university is favorable to families.

The Life-Shaping Power of Higher Education

October 06, 2017

Marvin Krislov, president of Pace University (NY), writes: The past decade is proof that higher education is more relevant and essential to our modern world than ever before -- and the value of a college degree has never been greater than it is today. Providing access to such an education for any student who wishes to pursue it strikes me as a goal that any great nation should and must embrace.
