ONLINE EVENT ADVISORY: After We Cancel the Debt

Washington, D.C. — Earlier this year, President Joe Biden took steps to provide relief to millions of borrowers struggling under the weight of student debt. But can the federal government do more to address the root causes of college affordability and the student debt crisis?

Please join the Center for American Progress for a virtual event exploring President Biden’s recent decision to cancel a portion of federal student loan debt, efforts to improve college quality and lower costs for students and families, and what reforms are necessary to prevent another student debt crisis from emerging in the future. Two congressional champions of higher education reform—Reps. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Bobby Scott (D-VA)—will join CAP for this event.


Introductory remarks: 
Patrick Gaspard, President and CEO, Center for American Progress
Jared C. Bass, Senior Director for Higher Education, Center for American Progress 

Rep. Rosa L. DeLauro, Chair, U.S. House Committee on Appropriations
Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, Chair, U.S. House Committee on Education and Labor

Mara Rudman, Executive Vice President for Policy, Center for American Progress
