Helix to join educators, policymakers, and advocacy groups in Washington for NAICU

Following the swearing in of a new Administration and a new Congress, just what does it all mean for higher ed? The National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) will tackle current and public policy questions and their impact on private, non-profit colleges and universities when it kicks off its Annual Meeting & Advocacy Day in Washington DC on January 29th. The event creates a platform for educators, policymakers and advocacy groups to discuss their most pressing issues.

Everything from the legislative landscape, policy, and accreditation, to student financial aid, accountability, online education trends and business models are up for discussion. The four-day event gives a voice to college and university presidents along with their government relations, communications, and institutional research teams.

Helix Education is pleased to be among the prestigious sponsors of the Annual Meeting. The Helix Education team will be on-site throughout the event talking with institutional leaders about the enterprise management of their online and on-campus programs, and how they can sustainably grow enrollments and best support students given changing market and learner dynamics.  Helix is co-sponsoring a reception on Monday, January 30th where attendees can compare notes, network and unwind with friends and colleagues.

Registration for the NAICU event is open.  We invite you to be part of this important dialog!
