Sponsored by

The CPPHE Pre-Conference Forum examines the role of higher education research in informing decision-making in the public policy arena, while simultaneously exploring how key actors shape public policy. This year, we will focus on issues surrounding the translation of policy research to policy action, such as federal policymaking and its impact on state policy, alternative methods of communicating research, and engaging diverse voices on emerging higher education policy issues. The CPPHE Pre-Conference Forum provides participants the opportunity to explore and discuss significant public policy issues that affect higher education in the U.S at the local, state, and federal levels.
