Marygrove College president to speak at national forum will discuss educational access for immigrant students

Dr. David J. FikeDr. David J. Fike, Marygrove College’s president, will join a panel of college presidents to discuss the role leaders in higher education play in bringing about social change at a summit organized by The National Forum on Higher Education for the Public Good and The Kellogg Fellows Leadership Alliance (KFLA) to be held April 26-28 in Washington, D.C.

The summit was organized to address the lack of comprehensive institutional policy, practices, and public understanding regarding educational access for immigrant students. It aims to foster increased public understanding of the importance of a policy agenda that addresses higher education policies as they relate to immigrant students in the U.S. It also intends to lay the groundwork for a long-term, multi-interest collaboration among higher education institutions, national associations, foundations and policy leaders to advocate for institutional, state and national policy change.

Each panelist will address how their institutions can exert leadership locally, within their states and at the association and federal level to bring about changes in policy and practice. Members of the panel include:

Moderator:
Rumaldo Z. Juarez, President Emeritus & Professor Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Participants:
David J. Fike, President Marygrove College
Barbara A. Viniar, President Chesapeake College
Tomás Arciniega, President Emeritus & Special Assistant to the Chancellor California State University System
William V. Flores, President University of Houston-Downtown
