So Much to Do, So Little Time: Stay Informed With AACTE’s Federal Update Webinars

Education funding is at risk of devastating cuts if Congress cannot reach a budget deal that raises the caps on federal spending for Fiscal Year 2018. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) reform, tax reform, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA) are all items vying for attention on an overcrowded congressional agenda.

With so many issues facing Congress, the need for the profession to stay informed is more important than ever. To keep up to date with all the latest information, please join AACTE for one of the October Federal Update webinars.

To help accommodate schedules and time zones, AACTE offers this members-only webinar at two different dates and times:

Don’t forget this is a great opportunity to involve colleagues or even your students. Advocates of all experience levels can benefit from viewing the webinar! If you can’t participate live, you can still make use of the archived recording later.

Want to engage now? Here are some ways to get active:

  • AACTE currently has an opportunity for you to participate in our newest Action Alert urging Congress to raise the budget caps for Fiscal Year 2018 (just be mindful of any policies at your institution that may restrict which e-mail and mailing address you can use).
  • Your institution can also consider signing onto a letter supporting DACA (an effort led by our colleagues at the American Council on Education; deadline of Wednesday, October 18, at noon EDT).
  • We also encourage you to browse the AACTE Advocacy Center, which features archived Federal Update webinars, advocacy guides to grow your skills, and other informative resources.

Be an informed advocate with AACTE!
