It can be argued that higher education is in a state of transition. Facing increased costs, decreased state funding, and changing student demographics, colleges and universities have increased tuition and fees for the last several years - and faced public criticism over these decisions. Proponents argue that a college degree is still the desired route to achieve economic and social mobility and it can be achieved without debt. Critics maintain that the crippling student loan debt - coupled with the low, entry-level salaries in many industries - is making college a less viable option.
Local institutions argue that college degrees and certifications can pay off as they implement tuition controls, counsel more effectively students and their families about loan and scholarship procedures, and continue efforts to contain costs. Join us for a conversation with local college and university enrollment specialists on the affordability of higher education in Northeast Ohio.
