Voices for Change

Scroll down to content

Students know what it’s like when college doesn’t work out as planned.  Life, logistics, and money often get in the way.  

Some students are living it and just trying to survive.  Other students are creating programs and plans to help. Some amazing people are doing both!

You are the voices America needs to hear from.

It’s time to speak up and speak out. #Voices4Change is for you.

Students who speak up are more likely to find the help they need.  When people listen to students, they make better policies and design better programs.  Your story matters.

Check out these students told their stories to the Chronicle of Higher Ed.
