TOMORROW: Braley Travels to Eastern Iowa Colleges to Host Campus Forums
Braley to hear about college affordability, student debt, employability in open discussions
Washington, DC – Beginning tomorrow, Thursday January 26th, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will embark on a two-day tour of eastern Iowa colleges and universities to host a series of open forums on the state of higher education.
Braley will moderate an open discussion with students, faculty, and administrators from local campuses to focus on college affordability, student financial aid, employability after graduation, and more.
“From affordability to mountains of student loan debt, there are unprecedented challenges facing students who want to pursue a college education,” Braley said. “I’m traveling across eastern Iowa to listen to students and educators about these challenges and to hear their suggestions for how to address them.”
The events are free and open to local students and the public.
