Twenty-seven members of the Postsecondary Data Collaborative, including WDQC, signed off on a letter last week to respond to the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee's request for comment on the Federal Postsecondary Data Transparency and Consumer Information White Paper.

The letter contained seven policy recommendations focused on improving data collection in an effort to provide better information to postsecondary education consumers and other stakeholders, while securing the privacy of students.

New America, a WDQC partner, also signed the letter and submitted their own comments, as well.
