Friday, December 22, 11am-12:30pm, Pomerene Hall [Partner Room], 1760 Neil Ave.

Even as controversy brews regarding loan forgiveness and the rising costs of higher education, some aspects of “high cost” extend beyond only the financial. In this event, our speakers address the ethical and political costs of attending — or not attending — higher education in the contemporary era. In identifying these costs alongside the financial burdens, democratic societies, and the universities within them, may have a foundation upon which to pursue new and more just aims.
