Securing the Promise of Higher Education: College Access to College Achievement

Securing the Promise of Higher Education: College Access to College Achievement

Thursday, July 24
2:15 pm - 3:45 pm

Duke Energy Convention Center

Students and families have a growing set of college options, but struggle to understand how to pay for college or best prepare students academically for success after high school. What are the right investments? What can we do to better support students as they work to graduate with a hard-earned degree or credential? How do we best address challenges such as crippling student loan debt, academic readiness and other impediments students face along the road to college graduation? Our panelists discuss the necessary tools that students and families need to plan and invest for the future.
