April 07, 2017

Janet Morgan Riggs, president of Gettysburg College (PA) and chair of the board of directors of the Association of Independent Colleges & Universities of Pennsylvania, writes:  I have a keen interest in making sure that talented students of all income levels have the opportunity to attain a high quality education. While I appreciate the challenges of balancing the state budget, I am puzzled by Gov. Tom Wolf's proposal to cut the Institutional Assistance Grant (IAG) program, a program that is front and center for these student lobbyists.  These grants are distributed to private institutions based on the number of low- and moderate-income Pennsylvania students they serve.

Isn’t It Pragmatic?

Isn’t It Pragmatic?

April 05, 2017

Michael S. Roth, president of Wesleyan University (CT), writes: Earlier this semester I traveled to India to talk about the importance of a broad, contextual education -- a pragmatic liberal education. Over the last few years, Indian students fortunate enough to have choices about where to pursue their studies have been, like their counterparts in China, increasingly interested in American liberal arts colleges and universities.

In Trump’s Budget: The Unwisest Cut

March 27, 2017

Andrew Hamilton, president of New York University, writes: The budget outline released by the White House this month demonstrates what that is – an astonishing set of cuts in America’s science enterprise, perhaps most notably in the National Institutes of Health, from which I have received a great deal of my support over the years as an organic chemist.

March 24, 2017

John J. Hurley, president of Canisius College (NY), writes: Our proposal to improve TAP by increasing the maximum award and income-eligibility limits will make free tuition at SUNY and CUNY available to many more students with financial need, while preserving students’ rights to choose the school – public or private – that best fits their needs.
