Congress, COVID-19, and the Colleges

This session will explore the policy and political climate in Washington DC, discuss current and potential policy changes, and encourage you to consider how these will impact your institution.
Abstract: As the start of the 2020–21 academic year approaches, America faces a series of unprecedented challenges: the worst public health crisis since 1919, the worst economic environment since 1933, and the worst civil unrest since 1968. Public policy-makers have so far struggled to respond to this rapidly changing environment. How will the federal government's actions affect colleges and universities? What other governmental policies might ameliorate these challenges on campuses? This session will explore the policy and political climate in Washington DC, discuss current and potential policy changes, and encourage you to consider how these will impact your institution.
