If you are one of our newest advocates, we would like to thank you for joining your fellow former students in this worthy endeavour, and welcome to the team! Our sixth news update includes a recap of both the Texas Republican and Democratic Conventions...both of which took place within the last two weeks. Other articles include an analysis of a proposed merger of the Department of Education and the Department of Labor, takeaways from the federal report on The Condition of Education, and an opinion piece about the "risks" of delaying the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA). We close this update with a Forbes article which highlights the cognitive benefits of pursuing and achieving a college degree.
While some articles may reflect opinion pieces, we hope that you will find all of the material informative, reasoned, and useful. We provide these articles to provide a broad context on the issues and not as an endorsement for any particular view.
Thanks and gig ’em,
Dave Fujimoto ’17
Director of Strategic Engagement
