The Challenge to States: Preserving College Access and Affordability in a Time of Crisis
National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 represents both an opportunity and a challenge for states to set priorities. A substantial portion of these one-time federal funds can be used to reposition higher education strategically to protect access and quality and to stimulate the increased cost effectiveness and degree productivity required to meet future needs for higher education. Policymakers, governing boards, and campus and system leaders must approach the difficult decisions that lie ahead with a commitment to basic principles, devising and implementing strategies to preserve college opportunity while stimulating innovations to prepare for a future that will require enhanced access, quality, cost-effectiveness, and productivity.
