Federal Public Policy
Independent Colleges of Washington holds memberships with the American Council on Education (ACE), The Council of Independent Colleges, as well as the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) and its affiliate, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities State Executives (NAICUSE). Through these associations, we collaborate with partners across the country to advance federal higher education policy, monitor regulations, support our students, and enhance visibility for our member campuses.
ICW’s federal public policy priorities focus on student aid, tax policy, and government regulation. We support policies that help ensure students can attend the high-quality college that best serves their interests, needs, and aspirations.
