Protecting Higher Education from Foreign Threats Act
To amend the Higher Education Act of 1965 to prohibit the award of Federal funds to institutions of higher education that employ instructors funded by the Chinese Communist Party, and for other purposes.
Protecting Higher Education from Foreign Threats Act This bill prohibits an institution of higher education (IHE) from receiving federal funds for an award year in which the IHE employs an instructor who, while employed at the IHE and providing direct instruction to students, received funds from the Chinese Community Party. An IHE may regain eligibility for federal funds by demonstrating to the Department of Education that it no longer employs such instructor.

In this Policy Priorities with RPC, Rep. Greg Steube (R-FL-17) explains how H.R. 2258, the Protecting Higher Education from Foreign Threats Act, takes a strong step to limit the influence of the Chinese Communist Party on our colleges and universities.


The CCP knows no bounds when it comes to infiltrating our nation.

Our colleges and universities should be protected from our enemies and it is imperative that students and their instructors in the US are not connected to the CCP.

I introduced a bill to curb this serious threat.
