● Overview

WEBCAST 

 

By now, most people know the headline: “Americans hold $1.5 trillion in outstanding federal student loan debt, with nearly one in five adults carrying a share of this burden.”

So what? Well, this record-level student loan debt prevents households from saving in the short-term, reducing the ability to reach broader financial security and upward economic mobility. Worse yet, some traditionally under-served populations carry disproportionately large debt burdens and are more likely to default.

Join education technology company Chegg and the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program in a live webcast as we share new data to understand borrower’s experiences, explore cross-sector solutions that could better support existing borrowers, and, importantly, consider critical reforms to improve the system moving forward. Join the conversation online with #StudentLoanImpact.
