This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin is joined by NASFAA's Diversity Officer Craig Slaughter, director of financial aid at Kenyon College in Ohio. Together the two talk about recent developments in the country and what financial aid professionals can do both individually and as an association to help bring about change in combating systemic racism in America and creating equal opportunity for students. Then, the team dives into the latest news regarding the CARES Act, including a recent report from the Congressional Research Service that casts a shadow of doubt on the Department of Education's guidance regarding eligibility for emergency student grants. Meanwhile, the Senate education committee on Thursday held a hearing on reopening college campuses in the fall and what will be required, both with regard to testing and financial resources for students. Finally, Megan brings us up to speed on the future of the Trump administration's borrower defense rule, as Congress moves toward a scheduled date to vote on overriding President Donald Trump's veto of a bipartisan bill that would have blocked implementation of the 2019 rule.
