Weekly Rundown more
  • This week, both the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate are in session for legislative business. While neither chamber is expected to consider student financial aid-related legislation, the House will consider H.R. 2353, the Strengthening Career and Technical Education for the 21st Century Act, which would reauthorize the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act that provides funds to states, community colleges, and high schools to improve and promote career and technical education programs. 
  • On Tuesday starting at 8:30 a.m., the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, Gallup, and the American Institutes for Research (with the support of Strada Education Network) host an event to highlight their “Launch My Career” tool. Launch My Career, a state-specific consumer information resource for traditional and nontraditional students, was launched in 2016 to provide program-level outcomes information. The event will highlight how to use the tool to help students identify personally and professionally satisfying career pathways, as well as how the education and business communities can work together to promote these pathways for students.
