Higher Education

From community colleges to graduate school, higher education is an engine of both personal and national prosperity. Decades ago, public investment in higher education kept tuition low. But continued state budget cuts have driven tuition cost up, compounding the student debt crisis that challenges the economic future of today’s graduates. To make higher education affordable and accessible again, EOI is working to restore public investments in higher education that will lower tuition, so the doors of higher education are open to all residents.
