On October 27 at 7 p.m., I'll be joined by Morty Schapiro, President of Northwestern University, and Merrill Irving, Associate Vice President of Continuing Education, Training and Workforce Development at Oakton Community College. Together we will be discussing the cost of higher education -- trends, implications and potential action steps.
We stress the importance of pursuing a higher degree to our students, yet the cost is difficult for most families, and prohibitive for others. I know this is an important issue for many members of our community, and I'm eager to share with them the insights of this terrific panel.
I hope you'll be able to join us! The details are below, and the rest of our Critical Issues Series schedule is here.
