The Higher Ed Agenda as Congress Returns From Spring Break
Play • 37 min

Congress comes back to DC next week to a full agenda and an attention span increasingly absorbed by the midterm elections. What’s in store for higher education? Listen to Jon Fansmith and Terry Hartle discuss federal funding, the upcoming Title IX rule—which could break new ground on transgender students—the student loan repayment pause, and possible legislation to aid student mental health.
