Understanding the Federal Relief Package’s Impact on Higher Education Institutions

About the Webconference

Presenters: Jackson Nell, John Tannous, Jon Barnhart, and Sarah Le Duc

On March 27, Congress passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, or “CARES Act,” a relief bill to support businesses and individuals affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other things, this bill provides emergency funding for higher education institutions and students. Join a panel of EAB experts as we unpack the bill’s impact on higher education. We’ll analyze the bill on a few different levels:

  • Clarify what funds are promised within the 880+ page bill—and what needs are left unfunded
  • Analyze how the funds will affect university finances and staffing needs in the short-term
  • Discuss the impact this legislation will have beyond the current crisis
