American colleges and universities attract students from across the world; few countries can compete with the wide array of higher education institutions and programs available in the United States. We must support continued diversity and choice in the higher education system in order to best prepare today’s students to join tomorrow’s workforce. Republicans are committed to reducing government intervention, streamlining federal student aid programs, and promoting increased transparency to protect both students and taxpayers.
