Fighting for higher education that works for all.
Scholars for a new deAL For higher Education
We are a group of teachers and scholars who believe that generous government reinvestment in our system of higher education is a necessary foundation for a democratic, equitable, and just society.
We call on the federal government to:
- Offer direct investment directed mostly at public institutions but also for non-elite, not-for-profit private institutions.
- Tie federal investment to reducing student debt and making access to college education affordable and equitable.
- Tie federal investment to supporting instruction and research, benefiting students, researchers, and faculty.
- Tie federal investment to living wages and benefits for all university workers, including adjunct professors and campus support staff, and to a commitment by colleges to stop the endless rounds of layoffs.
