IHEP President Mamie Voight’s Statement on the Reintroduction of the College Transparency ActPublished Apr 27, 2023
Washington, DC (April 27, 2023) – Upon reintroduction of the College Transparency Act, IHEP President Mamie Voight released the following statement:
“Deciding to invest time and resources in a college education is one of the most important decisions a student will make. To empower that decision-making, students need and deserve complete and useful information about how other students fare at the colleges and programs they are considering. The College Transparency Act reforms our existing data systems so students and families can access timely, high-quality, and user-friendly information. CTA will also empower policymakers with answers to key questions so they can craft evidence-based solution that promote better outcomes for all students, particularly students of color and students from low-income backgrounds. And by illuminating inequities facing students, CTA can support equity-minded, data-driven action among higher education institutions. We look forward to working with Congressional leaders to pass this critically important legislation.”
