A new federal administration is ushering in a new set of priorities and plans for higher education. Join us for a private briefing from the U.S. Department of Education's Michelle Asha Cooper, acting assistant secretary of postsecondary education, to learn about the Biden Administration's ambitions for students in higher education. Dr. Cooper will share why the administration is aiming for these goals as well as the policies and actions needed to bring them to fruition. Philanthropic leaders will join a panel discussion to talk about evidence-based interventions for postsecondary success, free college programs, capacity building and more. Get your questions answered about how funders might inform policy, ways philanthropy can leverage federal dollars, steps to address the pandemic's learning impacts and more.
This event is intended for members and other education grantmakers. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program. The program runs one hour and fifteen minutes.
