Removing Barriers to College Affordability: How Can Public Policy Help?

-- REGISTER NOW

This webinar will address barriers to college affordability and misperceptions about the real problems students and families face. It will examine different public policy approaches, including “free” and “debt-free” college, taxing college endowments, and strengthening the Pell Grant program to explore constructive paths to increasing educational opportunities.

Presenter: Sandy Baum is a nonresident fellow at the Urban Institute and professor emerita of economics at Skidmore College. Dr. Baum earned her B.A. in sociology at Bryn Mawr College, where she is currently a member of the Board of Trustees, and her Ph.D. in economics at Columbia University. She has written and spoken extensively on issues relating to college access, college pricing, student aid policy, student debt, affordability, and other aspects of higher education finance.

Dr. Baum has co-authored the College Board’s annual publications Trends in Student Aid and Trends in College Pricing since 2002. Through the College Board and the Brookings Institution, she has chaired major study groups that released proposals for reforming federal and state student aid. She has published numerous articles on higher education finance in professional journals, books, and the trade press. She is the principle researcher on the Urban Institute’s website on college affordability and her recent work includes Urban Institute briefs on graduate student enrollments and financing, studies of college endowments, and state grant programs. She is the author of Student Debt: Rhetoric and Realities of Higher Education Financing (Palgrave Macmillan 2016) and co-author with Harry Holzer of Making College Work: Pathways to Success for Disadvantaged Students (Brookings Institution Press 2017). She is a member of the Board of the National Student Clearinghouse.


EASFAA Webinar December 18, 2018

EASFAA Institutional Membership is here for 2019-20

-- REGISTER NOW

Beginning with the 2019-20 membership year, including registration for the 2019 conference in Portland, Maine, EASFAA will offer the option of either an individual or institutional membership.  Similar to the NASFAA approach, one point of contact at the institution will be responsible for maintaining a roster of staff under the institutional membership enrollment.  However, unlike NASFAA, all eligible EAFAA members will maintain their individual voting rights even under institutional membership.

When conference registration goes live, it will be very important to determine if your institution will be renewing as an institution or individually as we will not be able to change membership status after renewal.  Please join EASFAA President, Sam Veeder, for this webinar which will review the implementation and details of this exciting new membership category.
