Higher Education, Congress, and the Trump Administration

What Has Happened and What Should We Expect?
Published 2019 SCUP Annual Conference | July 2019
Presented by Terry W. Hartle

Effective leadership in American higher ed requires an ability to anticipate how federal policy changes could impact institutions. This session will review the first two years of the Trump Administration and assess changes we may see now that the Democrats control the House of Representatives. This session will discuss the possible reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, changes to federal regulations dealing with Title IX, accreditation, and Gainful Employment, the outlook for federal funding for student aid and scientific research, and the role that complex policy proposals like "free college" and "debt-free college" might play in the 2020 presidential campaign.
