Released Monday, 6th May 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
Hundreds of colleges have closed or consolidated in recent years, including public and private, nonprofit and for-profit schools across the country.  These closures impact students, faculty, staff, communities, and our nation, especially when poorly managed.  In part one of our two-part series, we explore how one college closure left Unique Johnson with debt and no prospects of continuing her education where she left off.  Scott Jaschik, editor at Inside Higher Ed, discusses the reasons many colleges are facing closure and what we might expect from the future.  Finally, Senator J.D. Ford of Indiana discusses his ideas for how Indiana can support students impacted by college closures.  Also, if you have been impacted by a college closure, we want to hear from you.  Take a short video of yourself telling your story and send it to [email protected].
