Meet Our New Research Associate

Peter Wood

I’m pleased to introduce the newest member of the National Association of Scholars staff, Neetu Arnold, who joined NAS as a research associate on September 16, 2019.

Neetu Arnold is joining us as a research associate on a Searle Freedom Trust-funded project on student debt and administrative growth. Neetu is a 2018 graduate of Cornell who has a bachelor’s of science degree in communication. Since graduating she has been a staff writer for The Daily Caller, where she has written up to fifteen short articles per week on education policy and campus culture. While she was still an undergraduate, she was a New York Campus Correspondent for Campus Reform.

She was right for our position is a lot of ways, but I especially prize her skill as an interviewer. In examining the runaway growth in college administrations, she will have to ask questions of a lot of people who will be reluctant to give answers. Neetu will get those answers.

Here’s what Neetu had to say about beginning at NAS:

“The National Association of Scholars is one of the few organizations working to improve higher education in the U.S. by supporting transparency in colleges and universities. I am thrilled to join the NAS team and embark on this journey. I am also grateful to the Searle Foundation for funding this project.”

Please join me in welcoming Neetu to the NAS staff. She may be reached at [email protected].
