Role of U.S. public and land-grant universities in strengthening and advancing U.S. global interests
On September 29, 2020 APLU hosted a webinar that featured a special discussion with former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates on the unique role public and land-grant universities play in advancing U.S. global interests through education, international development, research and public diplomacy. Following his opening remarks, Secretary Gates joined a panel discussion with Montana State University President Waded Cruzado and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Chancellor Robert Jones (moderated by APLU President Peter McPherson) that explored the work of public and land-grant universities around the world.

The Senate has been reluctant to approve that level of support as their July package and another one weeks later was substantially smaller.
