01/29/2014

APSCU, Washington, D.C., January 28, 2014—Following the conclusion of President Obama's State of the Union Address, APSCU President and CEO Steve Gunderson released the following statement:

"President Obama’s message tonight of opportunity for all is shared by thousands of private sector institutions working hard to provide access, opportunity and outcomes for millions of students.
 
"Postsecondary education is one of the most important investments Americans can make in their own future. We support efforts to improve simplicity, accountability and transparency in postsecondary education. At the heart of the issue rests the need to create a simpler and easier to navigate financial aid system, one that standardizes terms and delivery of aid, improves repayment options, and recognizes individual student circumstances."
