"If only one had time to read them all. Pick one and be stimulated. "The papers, commissioned by the Foundation, are intended to stimulate greater discussion and evaluation around several key topics in student finance, including affordability of higher education, student loan repayment, and federal-state-institutional partnerships. The papers are aimed at addressing solutions that can be implemented at the institutional, state and federal levels."
