NASFAA's Rapid Response Network (RRN) provides timely feedback on student aid issues to NASFAA staff, which is then used in NASFAA's policy and advocacy work with Congress and the Department of Education. Communication is done through a listserv, and RRN members are asked to provide feedback relevant to their own institution or experiences. If interested, please apply to volunteer no later than 5:00 p.m. ET on Friday, August 18, 2023. This volunteer opportunity is only open to individuals who are employed at NASFAA member institutions.
