WASHINGTON — The University of Nebraska and Iowa State University were among more than 100 colleges that announced plans during a White House summit Thursday to expand access for low-income students.
“The overarching message of the day is that there are a lot of things that we can do — universities, not-for-profits, foundations, businesses and government ... to open the doors of higher education to more people and to help them succeed once they get there,” NU President J.B. Milliken said.
