Session Description

Twenty years after the first edition of  The Debt-Free Graduate  was published, students still face the daunting task of funding their education with as little, or no debt, as possible. Citing research, observations and including discussion, the session will explore how the student financial landscape has changed during that time: How student expenses and needs have changed, new financial challenges they face, and the implications of this changing landscape on both a personal and macro level. Most importantly: How can we best tailor financial education to meet these changing needs and challenges?
