Is College a Lousy Investment?: Negotiating the Hidden Costs of Higher Education
Thursday, January 17, 2019 - 12:30pm to 1:45pm
Event Type: 
Event Location: 
CETL House #3211: Lab
By Invitation Only: 

In this workshop, author and fellow KSU faculty member Dr. Seneca Vaught will take us through the argument in his new book. We will consider the hidden costs of college and the shortcomings of considering education merely as a commodity, paying particular attention to groups of students who regularly shoulder more of that cost. We will broaden the definition of investment, moving from a guild mentality to considering long-term returns beyond financial earnings, so that we can have productive conversations with our students about the value of their education.
