Take Action

The results of the mid-term election made significant changes to the makeup of Congress and state governments. This brief summary of the election results, as well as the likely legislative agendas for the lame-duck session and the 116th Congress, highlights some possible implications for higher education. Developing a strategy on how to best advocate for graduate education over the next two years is important. Two new CGS policy briefs on How Graduate Students Finance Their Education and International Graduate Students provide key information around student financial assistance and the value of international students. They can be a useful resource for you and your government relations staff when making the case for graduate education.
