'Joe Biden Won. Here's What Higher Ed Can Expect.' by Michael Vasquez

Michael Vasquez writes the following for The Chronicle of Higher Education:

In sharp contrast to President Trump, whose administration spent much of the past four years actively attacking higher education, Biden—whose wife, Jill, is a longtime community-college educator—has signaled his support for the sector. His extensive Plan for Education Beyond High School promises to ‘strengthen college as a reliable pathway to the middle class.’

Before expanding Americans’ access to higher ed, however, Biden must first rescue a system beset by pandemic-induced crises that threaten to consume it. Deep financial problems stemming from enrollment drops and increased instructional expenses have forced thousands of layoffs and left an unknown number of colleges teetering on the brink of failure. Biden has called for a sevenfold increase in coronavirus testing—a plan that would provide vital health information to colleges eager to return students and professors to classrooms.

Vasquez explores the areas that the president-elect could tackle during his administration, such as campus sexual assault, student debt, international students, and for-profit colleges.
