NEA will designate October as the National Higher Education Month. NEA will work with the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) to use existing social and digital channels in celebration of the month that will include materials and activities for the members to use. The materials will be developed in collaboration with NCHE.

Rationale/Background

This will give Higher Education membership exposure and greater prominence in the NEA. It will strengthen the natural bridge between preK-12 and Higher Education. It will create an opportunity for preK-12 and Higher Education to work together.
