White House/college presidents affordability dialogue continues

Inside Higher Education reports that a group of 25 state college and university presidents met with White House officials on Friday, March 23, as previously noted to discuss how such institutions can address higher education affordability issues in light of reductions in state higher education funding. The presidents apparently expressed concern about Obama Administration proposals to shift federal funding for campus-based aid programs, such as the Perkins Loans program, among institutions based on their effectiveness in pursuing efforts to improve affordability. The administration's interest in encouraging states to restore, maintain, and where possible expand public higher education funding was also a key part of the dialogue.
