The last two years, in which Republicans have controlled the White House and both houses of Congress, have been challenging ones for higher education. Some legislative proposals -- and much rhetoric -- have run counter to the ideas many higher education leaders espouse. Colleges have had mixed success in this environment, with some proposals that they feared not happening in the end, while others have been adopted. Whatever the outcome of the mid-term elections, new players will be in key roles in the next Congress. We will consider they key issues colleges will face in the new Congress, the likely agendas of key lawmakers, and strategies that colleges hope to use.

2019 Leadership Series 
Inside Higher Ed is bringing together an intimate gathering of leaders and influencers to discuss big issues facing higher education.  Each of our daylong events will focus on a pressing topic and targeted audience of approximately 150 people. Hosted at the Gallup World Headquarters in Washington, DC, these events are an extension of Inside Higher Ed’s thoughtful, substantive and unflinching voice into a live convening of higher education leaders who share these values. Conversations will be led by editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman.
