During this interactive session, financial aid experts will share the latest data on student borrowing and offer perspectives on how colleges can approach the issue of student debt through their financial aid awarding policies, loan counseling, and other outreach with students and families. Participants will be invited to join the discussion about policies and practices that support wise decision-making about borrowing and other ways to pay for college.
