Trump Signs Broad Executive Order “President delivers on promise to punish colleges that don't show they guarantee free speech on campus, and includes language on outcomes data and risk sharing. But it's unclear what force it will carry.”

Knocking Down Barriers for Student Voting “The House Democrats' election reform bill would remove many of the roadblocks students face in registering to vote and getting to the polls, experts say.”

White house Looks to Curb Student Lending “As talks on new higher ed legislation heat up on Capitol Hill, the Trump administration weighs in with its priorities.”

Trump Seeks to Ax Humanities Endowment “For third year in a row, he also seeks to kill National Endowment for the Arts. Congress has rejected those proposals in the past.”

Why Do Colleges Die? “Scholar looks at history of U.S. higher ed and finds that vulnerable colleges, most of them private, tend to close or merge when crisis pushes them ‘over the cliff.’”

'I Can Exist Here': On Gender Identity, Some Colleges Are Opening Up “A decade ago, one university started putting pronouns on course rosters. Today, it's not alone.”
