This session will look beyond the headlines about an amorphous “student debt crisis” to examine the latest data on borrowing trends and identify ways that colleges can help students manage their borrowing. New national data will shed light on who’s really borrowing more and having trouble repaying. Presenters from a community college and public university system will describe their initiatives to help students make more informed financial decisions, which have led to decreases in borrowing rates. Session attendees will be invited to join the discussion about practices that support wise decision-making about borrowing and other ways to pay for college.
