This event will include presentations by GVSU faculty who have studied college affordability issues and current policy proposals for "free college" and offer student perspectives on college affordability. 

Prof. Denise Goerisch (Integrative Studies): "The Lived Experiences of Student Debt”

Prof. Goerisch will discuss how student debt affects the well-being of students, especially those in marginalized or under-served groups. 

Prof. Michelle Miller-Adams (Political Science): “Does Free College Have a Future?”

Prof. Miller-Adams will discuss the features and prospects of current proposals for "free college" and how they might improve college access for under-served students. 

Prof. Joel Stillerman (Sociology/Honors/AAUP): “Budget Transparency and University Accountability”

Prof. Stillerman will examine how the GVSU chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) is seeking greater budget transparency at GVSU so we can insure it is affordable for students while maintaining high quality educational offerings.
