Event description

Description

Achieving the goal of 60 percent of Americans 25 to 64 years of age with a high-quality postsecondary degree or certificate by 2025 will require urgent action and a stronger higher education partnership among federal and state governments, the private sector, and postsecondary institutions.

The University of Virginia Miller Center created the non-partisan National Commission on Financing 21st Century Higher Education in 2014 to develop policy and funding changes to reach this goal. With support from Lumina Foundation, the commission was tasked with developing policy proposals to provide long-term sustainable finance models for U.S. higher education.

The Commission’s culminating report, which includes in-depth analysis of higher education’s current challenges and nine recommendations, will be released on December 10, 2016. You are invited to attend the report release in person or to view the release event via webcast.
