Congressional Briefing on the History of the Higher Education Act
February 16, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
The briefing will take place Friday, February 16, at 11:30 a.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2060, Washington DC.
With Congress currently considering sweeping changes to the Higher Education Act of 1965, this is a useful time to consider the reasons for the original act and its impact on higher education. Two leading educational historians will examine how the federal government has helped to shape the structure and financing of higher education over the past half-century, reflecting on the implications of this history.
