Who are we? Student leaders of the Columbia University Senate Student Affairs Committee and the Teachers College Student Senate are inviting every student government in America's postsecondary education system to endorse the founding of the National Tuition Endowment. Together, we will represent approximately 15 million students attending more than 3,300 public and private nonprofit colleges and universities. Download the endorsement.
About the nation's tuition crisis: In the past 15 years, tuition and fee increases have outpaced both inflation and growth in the median family income. This impacts students enrolled in all types of postsecondary institutions. Millions of students have fallen into severe debt as a result of the significant rise in the nation's tuition and institutional fees; the drastic decrease in federal, state, and private grants/scholarships; and the rise of student loans from guaranteed (for-profit) lenders. Read more about the tuition crisis.
Where does the money come from? There are seven pillars of income that will be used to establish the National Tuition Endowment. These pillars are divided into two major sections: revenue and savings.
