Student Loan Forgiveness Misses The Underlying Problem - Commentary

Student Loan Forgiveness Misses The Underlying Problem - Commentary

November 14, 2022

Carl Moses, provost and vice president for academic affairs at Grand View University (IA), writes:  The student-loan forgiveness announced by the Biden administration has been characterized as unfair to those who already repaid their loans and as an unfair redistribution of wealth. Neither is a sound criticism, but more importantly, the forgiveness program fails to address the real problem of student debt. Let’s remember who borrows for post-secondary education.

Struggling Cabrini University Appeals for Partnerships

Struggling Cabrini University Appeals for Partnerships

November 10, 2022

Years of dwindling enrollment and ongoing financial challenges have led to deep cuts at Cabrini University (PA) as administrators seek long-term stability. Following the latest wave of cuts, university leaders are making an appeal for partnerships. And while a merger isn’t their first choice, they say all options are on the table. Cabrini administrators put current enrollment at roughly 1,500 students, both undergraduate and graduate. That’s a big drop from 2016, when a total of more than 2,300 students were enrolled. For the tuition-dependent private university in Pennsylvania, the drop-off has taken a financial toll; Cabrini is currently running a $5 million to $6 million deficit in a budget of $45 million.

In the 19th century, women’s colleges numbered in the hundreds. By 2014, there were only 42, according to federal data. In 2021, there were 35. Some of those institutions closed entirely. Others became coeducational as single-sex postsecondary education collapsed starting in the 1960s. Since the beginning of 2021, two other institutions have moved to take their names off the list of women’s colleges.
