Higher Learning Advocates (HLA)

Formed in 2017, Higher Learning Advocates (HLA) is a bipartisan nonprofit organization that advocates for federal policy solutions to promote access, equity, and learner success in the pursuit of education and skills development beyond high school. HLA advances federal policies that aim to create transparent pathways to success, incentivize innovation, protect learners and taxpayers, and improve learner outcomes. HLA advocates for policies that support a postsecondary system that is learner-centered, outcomes-based, and focused on ensuring all of today’s learners can access and succeed.

HLA released Strategic Plan 2022 - 2025 to guide efforts.
