NEC Holds 1st Annual New England Higher Education Policy Conference

In April, the Council hosted its first annual New England Higher Education Policy Conference at Northeastern University in Boston. The half-day conference featured keynote remarks from Representative Lori Trahan (D-MA), a member of the House Committee on Education & the Workforce, and Jane Oates, President of Working Nation.  The conference also featured two panel discussions featuring representatives of colleges and universities as well as employers in the region. The first panel focused on the Higher Education Act, and the second on workforce development.

Over 130 higher education policy leaders and government relations professionals representing colleges, universities, and non-profit organizations in all six New England states attended the very successful event, which the Council intends to host annually in the years ahead.
