Coronavirus Resources and Advocacy Efforts
Updates on NACUBO's advocacy, relief strategies, and congressional action, as well as information about how your campus can aid in advocacy efforts, are available here. NACUBO has also curated federal guidance, business continuity resources, and other useful information on a resource page.
Value of Higher Education
Colleges and universities provide immense value to students, communities, and society—and communicating that value is increasingly important. Business officers are uniquely positioned to articulate the value of higher education from a financial perspective. The tools below can be used for presentations, social media posts, media interviews, and more.
For the full toolkit, visit NACUBO's value of higher education page.
NACUBO partnered with a broad coalition of stakeholder organizations to produce these short, approachable, and highly informative videos on complex topics. NACUBO encourages its members to use and share these videos to explain how these policy areas affect campus operations.

2019 Perceptions and Priorities
NACUBO has created three slide decks to accompany our 2019 Perceptions and Priorities statement. Each corresponds to a priority highlighted in the piece and can be used in presentations and on social media. A handful of slides illustrate the same concept in different ways, allowing members to tailor their presentations to their audiences.
The slides are available exclusively to members. Endnotes are also available.
Slide Deck 1: Household Income is Not Keeping Pace with the Cost of College Access
Slide Deck 2: Providing Quality Higher Education Requires Significant Investment
Slide Deck 3: Higher Education Provides a Lifetime of Value
Note: On July 8, 2019, NACUBO updated slide deck #3 to correct a transcription error on slide #14.
