GRAND RAPIDS – Two West Michigan colleges are looking for new leaders. On Monday the outgoing Presidents of Aquinas College and Western Michigan University met to discuss the rising cost of higher education. Aquinas President Juan Olivarez says “We’ve got to work together on this front, because school has got to be affordable for students, and it can’t be through just taking out more loans.” John Dunn the outgoing President at WMU adds “I don’t blame anyone whether it’s a Republican or Democrat, but we’ve abdicated our responsibility and we need to fix that. It’s critical that we come change that.”
… Oliveras has been the President at Aquinas for the last six years, following a 20-year run at Grand Rapids Community College.
