With fees increasing 32% for University of California students, amid passionate protests, college affordability is making headlines once again, at a time when college affordability reform legislation awaits action in the Senate. This panel will examine the implications of the tuition debate in California, and look ahead at efforts to make college more affordable and accessible on the institutional, state, and federal levels.

Speakers for this event include Victor Sanchez, president of the University of California Student Association; Angus Johnston, a historian of student social movements, and blogger at; and Campus Progress’s Pedro de la Torre, a policy expert on student financial aid. The panel will be moderated by Erica Williams, Deputy Director of Campus Progress.
