Askwith Debates: Beyond “Free College”

Askwith Debates - Beyond “Free College”: Improving Opportunity and Success at Community Colleges Moderator: Bridget Terry Long, Saris Professor of Education and Economics, HGSE Speakers: • David Deming, Professor of Education and Economics, HGSE • Andrew Kelly, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Policy, University of North Carolina System • Deborah Santiago, Chief Operating Officer and Vice President for Policy, Excelencia in Education • Josh Wyner, founder and executive director, College Excellence Program and vice president, The Aspen Institute It is a changing time for higher education – between tax legislation that may impact institutions’ financial futures, a potential reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, and a tumultuous labor market that calls for workers with greater skills.

Amid these uncertainties is the ongoing debate: Should college be free? Some states, like New York and Tennessee, have implemented free tuition programs for community colleges. But some believe that simply making college free will not address issues of completion and success after college. Saris Professor Bridget Terry Long will moderate a debate with leading experts about the future of community colleges in our country – from the free college movement and how to improve community college opportunities and outcomes, to how to better support and help students with the challenges they face.
