In a time of heightened public scrutiny toward higher education, lawmakers and college and university leaders are tasked with developing effective strategies to address an array of challenges facing the sector. Concerns about issues such as diversity and inclusion, campus culture, and institutional funding remain at the forefront of policy discussions. At the federal, state, and institutional levels, conversations continue regarding student admissions, interpreting student and faculty rights, and the appropriate role of federal and state government all play in funding higher education.
To help institutions grapple with such complex issues, AGB regularly publishes the Top Public Policy Issues for Higher Education, because we know that properly addressing public policy and reinvigorating confidence in the sector requires institutional leaders who understand how these policies affect higher education. In a special sneak peek of the publication, join AGB and a diverse panel of experts to discuss some of the most important policy topics to higher education today.
