On September 22, 2021, ACTA’s webinar for college leaders and trustees offered valuable insight into current resources, best practices, and tools to help institutions of higher education control spending. A distinguished panel of leaders in higher education governance and policy provided their perspectives on what university leaders and policymakers can do to fix the problem of runaway spending that is continuing to contribute to the student debt crisis.  

Moderated by Armand Alacbay, ACTA’s VP of Trustee and Government Affairs, the panel included:

  • Congressman Tom Davis – Current Partner with Holland &  Knight, former Representative of VA congressional district 11, and former Rector of the George Mason University Board of Visitors.
  • Amy Jones, J.D. – The Education and Human Services Policy Director for the House of Representatives’ Education and Labor Committee.
  • James Toscano, D.L.P. – President of Partners for College Affordability and Public Trust.
  • David Walsh – Former President and CEO of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas Inc. and former trustee at the University of Central Florida.
