Mass. State Senator Moore Appointed to NEBHE Advisory Committee

Friday, July 12, 2013

 

Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury), Senate Chairman of the Joint Committee on Higher Education, announced today that he has been appointed to the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) Legislative Advisory Committee. The committee is made up of 24-30 distinguished legislators from the six New England states to address education and higher education issues facing the region.

“I am honored to be chosen to serve on the Legislative Advisory Committee for the New England Board of Higher Education,” stated Senator Moore. “As Senate Chairman of the Joint Committee on Higher Education, I understand the importance of ensuring affordability and accessibility for higher education. As a member of this committee, I will have the ability to learn new solutions for education concerns we currently face, and to ensure higher education in the Commonwealth continues to succeed in the 21st Century.”

The purposes of the committee include:
• Engaging New England legislators in conversations regarding key legislative activities and agendas;
• Exchanging higher education policymaking perspectives in the region and supporting increased interstate collaboration among legislators;
• Providing timely research and information to participating members through presentations by state, regional and national policy experts; and
• Informing and advising NEBHE’s policy research activities.

The New England Board of Higher Education was founded in 1955, when six visionary New England governors, realizing that the future prosperity of New England rested on higher education, committed their states to the shared pursuit of academic excellence. Soon thereafter, NEBHE was approved by New England's six state legislatures and authorized by the U.S. Congress. NEBHE promotes greater educational opportunities and services for the residents of New England. For more information, visit www.nebhe.org.
