Student Debt Conference- Day 2
Fri, April 21, 2017, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM CDT
Students, educators, artists, activists, community members, public officials and policy advisors from across California are invited to San Jose State University for two days of talks, workshops, and organizing activities centered on opening critical dialogue on how debt shapes everyday student life and drastically influences future life options for graduates. During these free and public events we will explore the realities of student debt, think together about the meaning and consequences of living an indebted life, and identify potential pathways for change.
DAY 2 (Friday 4/21) at San José State University features a series of workshops by students and social justice groups that address the question: “What is to be done about our current student debt crisis?” Workshops will be offered by The Debt Collective (national debt activists), Students for Quality Education (CSU student educational justice group), Cosecha (immigrants and debt), and Unitierra-Califas, amongst other groups.
This free public event is a collaborative effort led by the Humanities Department and MOSAIC Cross Cultural Center, Student Services, College of Education, College of Humanities and the Arts, California Faculty Association, College of Business, and the College of Social Sciences.
