POV: Access Without Support is Not Opportunity One can only applaud the recent proposal by the Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam to eliminate tuition for the first two years of community college for all high school graduates. Like similar proposals in Mississippi and Oregon, it is argued that eliminating tuition would increase access to college for many low-income students who do not now attend.
POV: Rural Colleges Bring Message to D.C. It is the first time in our nation’s history that institutions other than land-grant colleges have been mentioned by name in a Farm Bill. Our meetings with high level federal officials and their staffs confirmed the diligent work done by the Rural Community College Alliance to raise awareness as to the importance of our nation’s 600 rural community, technical, and tribal colleges as tools for regional rural development and uplift.
EVENTS CALENDAR: Higher-ed-related conferences,workshops, institutes, etc.
NEXT EDITION PREVIEW: Reviving The Dream Just three years ago, it seemed liked the dream was dead. The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which would have granted permanent residency to immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children and since graduated from high school, died in a gridlocked Congress.
