U.S. Under Secretary of Education Ted Mitchell will discuss the administration’s plans to improve college value and affordability through a new college ratings system during remarks at the Association of Community College Trustees’ 2015 National Legislative Summit Tuesday in Washington, D.C. A Q&A with audience members will follow.

The ratings system will showcase colleges and universities that are effective in improving student success; incentivize institutions to work toward the most important goals, like graduating low-income students and holding down costs; and help students and families choose their school based on the value it provides for their investment.

The Association of Community College Trustees represents 6,000 trustees serving on 650 state, district and local boards governing 1,200 community, technical and junior colleges across the country.
