Dr. H. Keith Wade, President and CEO of Webber International University has been appointed to the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (NAICU) Committee on Student Aid.
Representing nearly 1,000 private, not-for-profit colleges and universities, NAICU’s mission is to ensure that student aid programs continue to provide all Americans with access to the college of their choice, promote tax policy that helps families save and pay for college, and help private colleges fulfill their distinctive missions. In advancing NAICU’s efforts to ensure adequate funding for the core student aid programs, the Committee on Student Aid sets NAICU’s policy agenda, including federal funding issues and examination of options available to students for financing their college education.
“For many students and their families, how to afford college is a paramount concern,” said Wade. “I’m proud to help NAICU’s in its accessibility efforts. Higher education is not “one size fits all”, and access to high quality higher education transforms individual lives and our world.”
Wade also serves on the Executive Council of and as the Chair of the Florida Delegation to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and as an Examiner for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the nation’s highest award for quality.
