Welcome to SA Weekly, your destination for higher ed news, NASPA research and policy, constituent blogs, and more.

Simplifying Higher Ed Accountability -- or Complicating It? “Senator Lamar Alexander wants to apply a single loan-repayment system to programs at all colleges, nonprofit and for-profit alike, drawing concerns about student access.”

Next on College Completion Agenda: Equity “Community colleges are realizing that addressing racial and income equity are the missing pieces to improving completion rates. And Achieving the Dream wants to help them eliminate that inequity.”

Hate Incidents on Campus Still Rising “Results of a new survey show that administrators are still reporting incidents targeting minority students.”

What Single Moms Need to Succeed in College “An effort to hear directly from single moms about what they need to succeed in community college is part of a new initiative to raise graduation rates.”

Still Taking a Knee Against Racism “Athletes and activists who modeled themselves off Colin Kaepernick have continued their campaigns.”

When Speaker Series Has Mostly White Men “Stanford said it was creating a forum for sharing diverse views, but many students didn't see much in the way of diversity.”
