Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressmen Paul Mitchell (R-MI) and Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-IL) released the following joint statement after this week President Donald Trump released the administration’s higher education priorities and signaled support for college transparency.


“We are pleased to see that the President’s Higher Education Priorities highlighted the importance of providing students with the data they need to make better informed decisions about their post-secondary education. As lead sponsors of the bipartisan College Transparency Act, we look forward to working with the White House to increase transparency in higher education and enable students to make decisions that will put them on the path to success.  Our bill would provide actionable and customizable information for students and families as they consider higher education opportunities by enabling access to student outcomes such as enrollment, completion, and post-college success across colleges and majors, while ensuring the privacy of individual students is securely protected. Most importantly, this information will inform prospective students about how others have succeeded at a particular institution, and help point them towards schools and majors best suited to their unique needs and desired outcomes.”
