Baruch College Addresses College Affordability:
Expanding Access and Financial Resources During Tough Economic Times
Faced with rising tuition, funding cuts to higher education and an economy still in turmoil, even middle class families are finding it difficult to pay for college. What is happening to the college aspirations of low-income young people? Are the barriers to college more formidable than ever, and are there ways to overcome them and obtain that all-important diploma?
A panel of education experts will discuss college access, as well as state and federal financial aid programs and loan forgiveness initiatives designed to ease the burden on students already enrolled and on those just contemplating higher education. Presented by the Center on Equality, Pluralism, and Policy, School of Public Affairs, Baruch College.
