The Campaign for the Future of Higher Education (CFHE) is a national campaign that examines and fights against the corporatization and privatization of public higher education. 4 PHENOM members attended CFHE’s most recent national gathering and came away inspired. For instance, we learned that Washington, Minnesota and California all had victories similar to ours last year – increased funding to public campuses tied to a freeze in student costs.
CFHE has issued a number of very valuable papers that have received significant media attention. Please take a look at papers on various funding options, aspects of on-line education, and more.
The next CFHE meeting is May 16-18 in Albany. PHENOM hopes to have a strong presence and to continue having some influence on our growing national movement for equity, access, and democracy in higher education.
