Over three days, Braley will hear about community college affordability


Washington, DC – Beginning next week, Tuesday February 21st, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will embark on a three-day tour of eastern Iowa community colleges to host a series of roundtable discussions on community college affordability and accessibility.

“From affordability to mountains of student loan debt, there are unprecedented challenges facing students who want to pursue more education,” Braley said.  “I’m traveling to eastern Iowa community colleges to listen to students and educators about these challenges and to hear their suggestions for how to address them.”

Last month, Braley traveled to college campuses across eastern Iowa for a series of open forums on higher education affordability, student debt, and finding jobs after graduation.
