The National Forum which celebrated thirteen years of service in 2014, continues its affiliation with the Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education at the University of Michigan.
The National Forum exists to support higher education’s role as a public good.
In this pursuit, the Forum utilizes research and other tools to create and disseminate knowledge that addresses higher education issues of public importance.
This mission is expressed in a wide range of programs and activities that focus on increasing opportunities for students to access and be successful in college, college’s responsibility to engage with and serve their communities, institutional leadership roles and practices in promoting responsive policies and practices to address the student success and community engagement.
