Through existing resources, NEA will promote and celebrate October as National Higher Education month to acknowledge higher education professionals who educate, support, and serve students. In addition, NEA shall notify all state affiliates of the celebration by September 2019. 


NEA delegates last year approved the establishment of National Higher Education Month for October 2018.  This NBI seeks to expand on that work with the intent of providing time to create a full-bodied annual program.
