On Feb. 23, ADEA submitted comments on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (HEA) in response to a request for input by the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP). In addition to sending its own comments, ADEA joined the American Council on Education and other higher education coalition partners in addressing collective goals in two additional letters

ADEA focused specifically on issues affecting dental education such as loan forgiveness programs, increased interest rates and the capping of graduate student loans that had been targeted in the House reauthorization bill, the PROSPER Act.
