ABSTRACT
The article discusses higher education leaders' impressions of the first year of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. It notes that the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and the K-12 Race to the Top Fund have had a positive effect but that the long debate on health care reform has affected momentum on domestic policy. Other issues remaining include student aid and executive orders on historically Black, Hispanic and tribal colleges.
