CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White
Beginning next year, the government will tie college and university federal financial aid to schools' performance in providing access, ensuring affordability, and proving student outcomes, according to a new framework released by the U.S. Department of Education. CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White noted in a statement released Friday that the framework "aligns with many of the variables that are found in the CSU’s innovative Contributions to the Public Good page, which pioneered providing information on costs, access by low-income and under-served communities, student loan indebtedness and starting and mid-career salaries, among other outcomes."
