As part of our Save Student Aid! Campaign, the Student Aid Alliance yesterday delivered a statement of support for federal student aid funding signed by more than 100,000 people to members of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction. The Alliance is already hearing positive feedback from a number of those members’ offices this morning.
Hundreds of college and university presidents, as well as thousands of students, administrators and citizens from all types of institutions nationwide pledged their support for student aid. The campaign was launched on Oct. 24, 2011, and thousands more supporters are joining each day.
Student Aid Alliance co-chairs Molly Corbett Broad, president of ACE, and David L. Warren, president of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, said: “This remarkable public response demonstrates that student aid is an issue of deep concern to millions of students, educators and families. They know real solutions to the federal debt start with growing our economy, and our economy will only grow if we have a skilled and educated work force.”
