 Initiatives

 
​​​The Task Force on Federal Regulation of Higher Education, formed in 2013​ by a bipartisan group of senators, is conducting an in-depth study of the federal regulations affecting colleges and universities, with a focus on regulations stemming from the Higher Education Act and, more broadly, the Department of Education.  The senators appointed a 16-member group of higher education leaders to be a part of the Task Force, and asked William E. Kirwan, chancellor of the University System of Maryland, and Nicholas Zeppos, chancellor of Vanderbilt University (TN), to serve as co-chairs. ​
