Message from the FAMU Director of Governmental Relations, Barbara Cohen-Pippin

Dear Rattlers,

We need your assistance contacting our U.S. Representatives. Please call their Washington, D.C. and local congressional offices and ask them to oppose provisions in the House Bill relating to the Reauthorization of the Higher Education Act. According to the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities, these provisions "would needlessly drive up student debt" and "make college less affordable," making this bill detrimental to HBCUs. Please contact your U.S. Representatives and ask them to oppose the bill. For your reference are links below with talking points prepared by Congressman Bobby Scott and a list of Florida's U.S. Congressional delegation.  

Thank you for all you do on behalf of our beloved FAMU.  Go Rattlers!!!
