FY2011 Budget Proposal: Thoughts and Recommendations for Increasing College Access and Success. Mini Brief
Institute for Higher Education Policy
The Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) is encouraged by President Obama's commitment to increasing college access and success for all students, as evidenced by the recommendations in his Fiscal Year 2011 budget proposal. Efforts like the Access and Completion Fund, the American Graduation Initiative, the expansion of student loan repayment options, and support for minority-serving institutions (Hispanic-Serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Tribal Colleges and Universities) will collectively help increase the number of students who successfully enter and complete college. Given IHEP's research and programmatic efforts focused on the various topics referenced in the budget proposal, this brief provides some recommendations to the existing proposals that will likely: (1) aid more eligible students; (2) better target interventions; and (3) encourage partnerships with the federal government.
