Hear from experts in the field — Jane Wellman and Brian Murphy — as they discuss the many contributing factors behind the past thirty years’ trends in higher education finance and the rise of student debt. They'll highlight some of the institutional and political interests behind the rise in indebtedness, the (so far) inadequate responses to the crisis, and whether real solutions are possible.

Jane Wellman is a consultant in Higher Ed Financing and Brian Murphy is an associate with the Center for the Study of Higher Education, UC Berkeley.
