Attaining a postsecondary degree is increasingly crucial for social mobility and economic growth in today’s economy, but students face a daunting landscape—rising tuition prices, spiraling student debt, and lackluster outcomes at many institutions. Meanwhile, the Higher Education Act has not been updated since 2008, making it difficult for federal policy to address these challenges effectively.

Join us for the release of a new report by the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Task Force on Higher Education Financing and Student Outcomes. This comprehensive set of recommendations will provide a bipartisan blueprint for improving access, affordability, and accountability in the U.S. higher education system.
