I had the chance to attend the President’s Program at the Higher Learning Commission Annual Conference in Chicago today (April 1, 2017). We heard from Senator Dick Durbin today who spoke to the Presidents about the importance of diligence and accountability if we want to maintain the current system of peer review for accreditation in higher education. Many speakers spoke of the lack of focus from President Trump in regards to Higher Education.
The Presidents discussed the importance to ensuring higher quality at a lower cost. I look forward to working with the Harold Washington College community to find innovative ways to make this happen in the future!
