The life and logistics issues that many students in higher education face are daunting to say the least. In the conversation that follows, one of the nation’s leading champions of better understanding our students’ challenges and catalyzing affordability innovation across higher education, Dr. Sara Goldrick-Rab, helps us unpack the issues and learn from the good work happening in the field. She also comments on her recent large-scale survey of housing and food insecurity featured in the Washington Post.
