Forum on College Value and Affordability
In August 2013, President Barack Obama announced the Administration’s plans and proposals for combating rising college costs and making college affordable for American families. The President’s plan included three parts: paying for performance; promoting innovation and competition; and ensuring that student debt remains affordable.
As part of an effort to gather public input about these proposals, and in particular the development of a college ratings system, the Department of Education will be hosting open forums around the country. These open forums are designed to offer the opportunity for members of the public to provide feedback and input on the Department’s plans and proposals, and to hear the input of others.
LSU will be hosting a forum on November 21, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Noland/Laborde Ballroom at the Lod Cook Alumni Center. The open forum is free and open to the public.
