Upcoming EventsHigher Ed Day - February 27th
Each year, a day is set aside and proclaimed by the governor as Higher Education Day in Alabama. It is a day for students, faculty, staff and other supporters to visit Montgomery and take part in a huge Higher Ed Day Rally that allows rally participants to voice their support for higher education. With 3,500 plus attending the festivities each year, legislators and other policy makers have a real-life “visual” of the huge support coming from Alabama’s 15 public universities. Rally participants have
the opportunity to advocate the importance of more funding for higher education face to face with policy makers. Without the needed funding in the Alabama college and universities, tuition will continue to rise and proration will occur.
Sign up to Attend Higher Ed Day on Thursday February 27th in Montgomery to support Higher Education.
