The Campaign for the Future of Higher Education calls on America’s college & university faculty to join in the search for new ways to fund higher education.
In the United States, quality public higher education was once accessible to most Americans able to benefit from it.
The way it worked was simple—taxpayers funded public colleges and universities sufficiently so that students who were prepared to work a few hours a week could complete their degrees in a relatively short time with a minimum amount of debt. For those with even greater need, government provided state grants and Pell grants.
This system worked well for decades and opened the door to opportunity for millions of Americans.
Now, we are told we can no longer afford this. We believe that is wrong.
