The Student Debt Initiative
The Dignity + Debt Network is exploring issues and solutions for student loan debt traps on a number of fronts. These include the recent “Digging out With Dignity” conference at Princeton University, co-presented with the Aspen Insitute’s Financial Security Program (October 18, 2019). In collaboratiom with the VizE Lab, our projects in this initiative enable scholars, students, and former students to visualize data on the enduring social inequalities that structure student debt. We offer means to broaden the conversation about the impact of student debt and imagine solutions for the student debt crisis and for financing higher education.
