Now is the time to take action on behalf of college students and institutions across the nation. In this time of turmoil, the national associations that represent higher education, including the National Association for Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU), have put together a request for Congress. The request seeks emergency grant funds for students and assistance for colleges and universities. We are hearing that the proposal being considered by the Senate will only cover about 10% of the projected higher education need. Now is the time to make your voice heard on this very important topic.

Working with the Minnesota Private College Council (MPCC), NAICU has urged individuals to reach out to their elected officials. We encourage you to take action. Find more information here, including a blank template which can be completed and sent directly to your elected officials.
