Comment Now on HEA Reauthorization-Related White Papers

    TIME SENSITIVE: Responses due April 24, 2015

    The U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) seeks input from the higher education community for its work on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA). Your feedback is requested by April 24 in these areas:

    • Accreditation in higher education
    • Risk sharing in student borrowing
    • Data transparency and consumer information

    On March 23, Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), chairman of the HELP Committee, released three staff white papers on these issues and requested feedback from the higher education community on the content of the papers. All of the comments received will be shared with Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA) and other members of the HELP Committee. You can read the senator’s press release here.

    Each white paper presents the overall goal, strategy, and background on the issue and then moves into proposals.

    The Higher Education Accreditation Concepts and Proposals can be found here. E-mail your response to accreditation@help.senate.gov.

    The Risk-Sharing/Skin-in-the-Game Concept and Proposals can be found here. E-mail your response to risksharing@help.senate.gov.

    The Federal Postsecondary Data Transparency and Consumer Information Concepts and Proposals can be found here. E-mail your response to consumerinformation@help.senate.gov.
