As we move into 2021 with a new presidential administration and a new Congress, one thing is clear: we can expect significant change coming out of Washington. After a tumultuous transition marked by unprecedented violence at the Capitol, where can we expect the Biden administration to place its focus in the first months? What will Miguel Cardona, the nominee for Secretary of Education, prioritize for higher education? How will the Department’s priorities change over the coming months? On Capitol Hill, we can also expect a substantial shift. With the new Congress, Democrats have a razor-thin majority. What could that mean for the legislative agenda relative to higher education? Please join us for a post-inaugural Briefing with Terry Hartle, Senior Vice President for Government Relations at the American Council on Education, who will walk us through the changes and help us understand what we can expect in the early days of the new administration, on everything from immigration, to student debt forgiveness, to COVID-19 relief.
This Briefing will be longer than NACUA’s standard Briefing at 45 minutes to present all the latest developments, will include a PowerPoint presentation, and will be complimentary to NACUA members.
