U.S. Rep. Ron Kind to Visit Campus
 MAILED:  March 11, 2004

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind will host a Town Hall meeting regarding the Higher Education Act from 12:30-1:30 p.m. Friday, March 12, in Davies Theatre at UW-Eau Claire.

In 1965, Congress passed the Higher Education Act to provide all Americans, regardless of their income-level, with greater educational opportunities. The Act recognizes the shared benefits, by society and the individual, of a higher education, including increased economic prosperity, greater civic involvement and national security.

The Education and Workforce Committee, of which Rep. Kind is a member, is in the process of reauthorizing the Act. Kind’s visit to campus on Friday is an effort to gather feedback about the Act from faculty, staff and students.
