Public Policy Agenda, 2001.
American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
This document highlights the policy and advocacy positions that the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) will assume in upcoming legislative and regulatory processes. Member institutions will find these policies predictive of advocacy efforts on their behalf; policymakers will find positions predicated on the needs of students. Among the premises on which the agenda is based is that higher education is a common good that serves the interests of society and provides individual benefits. State colleges and universities are committed to providing access to quality undergraduate and graduate programs. To this end, policies are outlined for: (1) various aspects of student financial aid; (2) federal and state tax policies; (3) teacher preparation, development, and support; (4) international program opportunities for students, faculty, and administrators; (5) federal and state issues related to science, research, and information technology; (6) federal and state issues related to access and inclusion; (7) economic and workforce development; and (8) governance.
