Booklets

With student borrowing rising -- and political concern about debt growing with it -- Inside Higher Ed today publishes a free compilation of articles about the future of student loans. The news and opinion articles -- in a print-on-demand booklet -- explore the impact of federal policies, strategies some institutions are adopting, and the views of thought leaders on the issue.

Download the booklet here.

This booklet is part of a series of such compilations that Inside Higher Ed is publishing on a range of topics.

On May 21, Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman led a free webinar to talk about the issues raised in the booklet's articles. To listen to a recording, please click here.

The compilation of articles is made possible in part through advertising support from Inceptia.
