Ignoring a Problem - Highest Student Debt of Public BigTen Schools

Won't make it go away...

From the Daily

Fighting rising tuition and student debt

If University President Bob Bruininks and the Board of Regents are serious about reaching any top three goals, they need to put the interest of students first. But by increasing tuition of both undergraduate and graduate students, University officials are effectively increasing the debt of each. The high tuition rates and average debt could potentially scare away talented students to schools more accommodating to their financial needs.

The average student debt of a University graduate is $24,995, the worst in the Big Ten among public universities. Illinois has the lowest debt at $15,413.

How about it Bob and Tom? Don't you think it's time to discuss this very important matter?
