Decades of state budget disinvestment from public higher education caused tuition hikes and skyrocketing student debt.
The Student Impact Project, an initiative of Young Invincibles, aims to equip students with the tools and resources to organize and advocate for state policies that support college access, affordability, and success.
Specifically, the project will:
- Train student leaders on advocacy best practices and state higher education budgetary policies that impact students.
- Encourage state policymakers to invest in quality public higher education and prioritize polices that facilitate access, completion, and success, particularly for low-income and minority students.
- Lift up the student voice among key stakeholders making state higher education policy decisions.
