Rio Salado College is pleased to announce that President Chris Bustamante now serves on the board of directors for the newly-created Higher Learning Advocates (HLA).

A recent article by Inside Higher Ed mentions that HLA is a bipartisan policy-focused organization that announced its formation on March 15, 2017. The nonprofit group’s goals are to advocate for federal policies that are "equitable, outcomes-based and focused on educational quality" to increase post-secondary attainment.

This an exciting opportunity to strategically tackle federal educational policies that will affect students. To learn more about Dr. Bustamante and the HLA, visit his board member page.
