I support higher ed reform and reinvestment
According to a recent survey, 88% of Virginians agree that Virginia’s colleges and universities are “a valuable public asset of the Commonwealth of Virginia, are well run and are a sound place to invest public dollars.” I am one of the 88% and I support Growth4VA, a grassroots coalition working for strategic higher education investments and business-higher education partnerships that will help grow our economy, create more well-paying jobs, keep talented young people in Virginia, and make college affordable for all. As you craft Virginia’s new state budget, please support our priorities for college investment & reform: • More internships, financial aid, and tuition grants for students • Reforms that match academic programs with identified needs of employers • More university research leading to new businesses and jobs • Partnerships between businesses and colleges for cost-saving innovations • A new state reserve fund to guard against tuition spikes Talented young Virginians should not have to leave our Commonwealth to find good job opportunities, so let’s invest in our higher education system and make it an engine of growth and opportunity for all. Thank you for your time and consideration of these issues.
