  • Crystal Balls and Casting Runes: Predictions for HEA Reauthorization in the 116th Congress

    Despite the fact that it’s only October and there are still a couple of months left in the 115th Congress, it’s now clear that reauthorization of the Higher Education Act will continue to be delayed. Having been passed out of committee on a party-line vote last December, the Promoting Real Opportunity, Success, and Prosperity through Education Reform (PROSPER) Act – a partisan reauthorization bill written by Republican leadership of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce – remains unlikely to be brought up for a full vote on the House floor. Similarly, several hearings and statements by Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee leadership from both parties asserted that HEA reauthorization would be a priority in 2018, but for talks around a bipartisan bill collapsed in the late spring and early summer of 2018. The continued delay is unfortunate as there are much-needed updates to our nation’s signature higher education law, but it does provide the opportunity for a fresh start in both the House and Senate and the prospect of a more bi-partisan process for legislation in the 116th Congress. This post by NASPA director of policy research and advocacy Teri Lyn Hinds will discuss what the future of HEA might be in the 116th Congress as well as identify policy proposals NASPA will be working to promote with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to improve outcomes for students and student affairs professionals under the next reauthorization.
