The Higher Education Act: Changes to Impact Students, Faculty, and Institutions
2:00-3:00 pm (ET)
It’s undeniable that the landscape of higher education is constantly changing. So too must the federal policies that provide the foundation for how higher education operates in America. As AACN and its colleagues continue to analyze and advocate for our membership during the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, it is important for deans, faculty, and students to understand the implications of proposed policy changes that may radically impact federal student borrowing, repayment, and regulations impacting our programs.
- Discuss the Higher Education Act and it’s potential impact on your School of Nursing.
- Demonstrate how members could utilize their resources to minimize the impact
