Arlington, Va. — Today, U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) announced that he and Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chair U.S. Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), along with a group of 10 additional senators, sent a public comment letter to the U.S. Department of Education regarding the Department’s upcoming Title IV rulemaking.
In the letter, the senators urge the Department to enact a number of regulations to address what they call “predatory for-profit institutions.”
Career Education Colleges and Universities (CECU) President and CEO Dr. Jason Altmire had this to say in response to the letter:
“The senators are to be commended for their commitment to students and for holding institutions of higher education accountable. We share the goal of protecting students and hope the senators will join Secretary Cardona and us in supporting accountability measures that apply to all institutions in all sectors.”
