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

Massive Admissions Scandal “Details emerge about indictments of wealthy parents who allegedly found ways to rig the system; coaches lose their jobs; and some call for discussion of the many (legal) advantages for families of means.”

Trump Seeks Billions in Cuts “Congressional appropriators have rejected previous White House calls to cut student aid. New budget plan also backs congressional deal on 'risk sharing' for colleges.”

Uncertainty for Non-Tenure-Track Union “Federal appellate court decision could make it harder for adjuncts to form unions at private institutions, especially those adjuncts who want more of a say in institutional decision making.”

States Seek Tighter Regulation for For-Profits “State lawmakers, advised by Robert Shireman, want to fill what they call a void in federal leadership by enforcing regulations on for-profit institutions and recently converted nonprofit colleges.”

Promoting Tuition-Free Programs to Undocumented Students “States are embracing undocumented immigrant students as colleges expand tuition-free programs.”

Another Ruling Chips Away at NCAA Limits for Athletes “Judge declares that association and colleges illegally restrict value of "education benefits" to which big-time football and basketball players are entitled -- but stops far short of free market sought by athletes.”

Political “Litmus Tests” in Florida “Academics oppose proposed legislation to survey student and faculty political beliefs at public universities.”
