Reimagining Higher Education
The state of higher education in Illinois is in crisis. It's time for us to rethink who gets to write the rules for higher education in Illinois. Today, we're inviting you to join the Roosevelt Institute, Young Invincibles and Mikva Challenge, at a special roundtable discussion on the future of higher education in our state.
We are the future of Illinois. Yet, investments in our education---especially college accessibility, affordability and quality---have not met the needs of every Illinoisan. We need political leadership and public investment in our education system. Governor Rauner’s 2016 State Budget address will serve as a starting point for our conversation in bringing together students, and young adults and members of the Illinois General Assembly Future Caucus to reimagine our education system in Illinois.
This event is one of many happening in cities across the country as a part of the launch of Roosevelt Institute’s Next Generation Blueprint for 2016. The Next Generation Blueprint is a call to action developed from the opinions of 1,000 young people from over 160 college campuses.
