I think it is safe to start thinking ahead to what a Biden/Harris administration will mean for higher education.
A review of their campaign platform for higher education outlines a number of objectives, including:
- Loan forgiveness
- PELL Grant Increases
- Free community college
- Free state universities for those earning less than $125,000
It is unlikely that any administration will be able to fulfill all of their ambitions, but this does provide insight into their priorities, which revolve around access and affordability.
Dr. Jill Biden, who has been an educator her entire career, will also bring a deeper understanding of the barriers to student success.
