Today, an important meeting in Washington, D.C. regarding college affordability and productivity is taking place.

It would appear your voices have been heard–loud and clear–”enough is enough”, regarding outrageous tuition increases nationwide. A rare meeting is taking place at the White House to discuss affordability and productivity in higher education with President Obama, presidents and chancellors of 10 colleges: public universities, large state university systems and private institutions. Also in attendance: Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education, White House advisers, Jane Wellman of Delta Project on Postsecondary Costs, Productivity and Accountability and Jamie Merisotis of the Lumina Foundation.
