Statement of ACE President Molly Corbett Broad on the Resignation of Under Secretary of Education Martha Kanter

August 14, 2013

 

“In her time as under secretary at the U.S. Department of Education, Martha Kanter has played a major role in setting higher education policy in some of the most important areas under the department’s purview. She was instrumental in engineering the successful transition of the federal student loan program from a bank-based system to Direct Lending, which has resulted in substantial savings for students and their families.

Martha’s advice and counsel have been invaluable to President Obama and Secretary Duncan, who have made higher education a major priority for this administration. Her extensive campus experience ensured that she understood the challenges facing American higher education during these turbulent times. She has been a supportive and engaged partner, willing to reach out to the community on a wide variety of issues.

On a personal note, I consider her a great friend and colleague and look forward to continuing our work together on behalf of American higher education.”
