Seminar on Higher Education Act Draws From Independent, Public Campuses

AICUO President Todd Jones led a morning-long seminar on the recently reauthorized federal Higher Education Act Wednesday morning at Franklin University in Columbus. Nearly 100 representatives from 34 Ohio campuses, including two from the public sector, attended.

The program used much of the material developed by the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities of Ohio for its HEA 101 program. Todd, a former deputy assistant secretary of education, added his own interpretations and predictions from his years of experience in and around the Congress and federal government.

If you’re interested in knowing more about the changes in federal higher education policy -- and all the new expectations placed on our sector by the new law -- visit NAICU’s HEA 101 website, or send an e-mail to In addition, if there's enough interest we will hold another seminar -- contact us at "ask Todd" if you're interested.
