SMU Panel to Discuss Rising Student Debt
A lunchtime panel Friday at SMU will shed light on the country’s student-loan debt crisis, and ponder ways to go about fixing it. The event begins at noon in Simmons Hall.
“Americans are less able to afford college today than they were a decade ago, and this condition has helped increase loan indebtedness,” discussion moderator and professor/associate dean Michael McClendon said in a press release. “There are concrete steps, however, that students and their families, colleges and universities, states and communities can take to lessen these problems.”
