    Stories and Voices on Access to Education

    5:00pm to 8:00pm


    Hamilton Smith Hall 95 Main St, Durham, New Hampshire 03824

    Universities are closing, the cost of higher education is out of reach for more and more families, many college graduates have staggering debt, and many are questioning the value of higher education. Therefore, we will investigate these questions as we convene stakeholders and community members to consider the question: Should higher education be more accessible?

    Please join us to learn about the concerns of our community, students, and families.
