  • With Higher Education Act reauthorization talks heating up on the hill, the term “risk-sharing” is on everybody’s lips these days. But what is “risk-sharing”? And what does it really mean to make sure colleges have “skin in the game”? Find out at the second event of Third Way’s "Behind the Bumper Sticker" series where experts debate some of higher ed's most talked about topics. 

    Join Third Way on Wednesday, February 21st from 12:00-1:30pm at U.S. Capitol Visitors Center, SVC Room 212-10 for lunch and a discussion with some of higher ed’s preeminent “risk-sharing” experts. Third Way’s Lanae Erickson Hatalsky will moderate this conversation with: 

    • Dr. Nick Hillman, Associate Professor of Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis at the University of Wisconsin-Madison;
    • Dr. Tiffany Jones, Director of Higher Education Policy at the Education Trust;
    • Dr. Matthew ChingosDirector of the Urban Institute’s Education Policy Program

    Learn the ins-and-outs of “risk-sharing” and see for yourself if you think it’s the proper tool for holding institutions accountable for their students’ outcomes.
