Covering Higher Education's New Political Landscape

Overview

Covering Higher Education’s New Political Landscape

A big increase in college student voter turnout helped flip the U.S. House of Representatives to Democratic control and elected scores of new state and local officials. Now, it's clear that higher education will be shaped by—and will shape—the new political landscape of 2019.

To help journalists cover the impact of the midterms on education beyond high school, the Education Writers Association is holding a two-day intensive training seminar January 28-29 in Washington, D.C.

The seminar, which will be held at the Hotel Monaco in Washington, will allow a select group of journalists opportunities to hear from leading experts on issues expected to be at play in 2019, such as student debt, voting controversies, “free” college, and higher education deregulation. In addition, participants will receive data and skills training on subjects such as campaign finance and college accountability databases.

Journalists interested in attending this training event should reserve their seats as soon as possible by registering.

Those who need scholarship funding to cover expenses—ranging from registration fees to travel and hotel costs—must fill out a scholarship application before registering.

If you have any questions about the event, please contact events@ewa.org.
