UO Assistant Ombuds, Jennifer Hudson, has been selected for the Accessibility Subcommittee of Forward50, the Higher Education Committee of 50. Hudson will spend a year working on policy recommendations destined for Capitol Hill. “I think it’s a really exciting moment to not only change the dialogue regionally but nationally around these issues for students,” Hudson said. “We want to diversify campuses, we want student retention, we want student success; we need to start thinking about these things not only as it pertains to our institutions but at large.”
Forward50 is a a group of college presidents, governing boards, students, and other post-secondary leaders convened by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Forward50 will produce four white papers on access, affordability, accountability and transparency. (Around the O.)
