Executive Order on Colleges and Universities Issued

Yesterday, President Trump signed an executive order that seeks to address two allegations made against higher education:  1) colleges and universities stifle the free speech rights of conservative students and organizations; and, 2) institutions of higher education do not provide enough useful data about themselves to students and the public with respect to a host of issues, such as cost and student outcomes.

Following the executive order, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos released a statement of her own.

The Office of Federal Relations will continue to monitor developments on this front.
