Affording College: Costs, Debts, and the Way Forward

January 13-15, 2016

With political candidates debating debt-free education, student loan debt skyrocketing as a percentage of campus revenue, and with sticker prices exceeding the annual income of many families, it is time for a thoroughgoing and practical examination of college costs, student aid, and sustainable solutions to keep college in reach of those capable of benefiting from it. This event will bring college presidents, higher education economists, and student aid experts together with a highly experienced audience of dedicated enrollment policy makers, practitioners, and scholars.
