The cost of higher education and concern about student debt levels have featured prominently in the media this year. A recent national tuition and student aid survey offers brighter news: in 2012-13, tuition and fees at private colleges and universities increased an average of 3.9 percent – the lowest rate in at least 40 years – while institutional student aid increased 6.2 percent. While the financial challenges facing students and their families are still very real, this is encouraging news.

Keeping institutional costs down and ensuring affordability for students from all backgrounds, while providing a world-class education is a key priority for Carleton and at the heart of our strategic plan. As Carleton’s Vice President and Treasurer, Fred Rogers '72 is at the forefront of this challenging and delicate balance. In his presentation, Fred will discuss how the College is addressing these challenges and offer insights about Carleton’s future.


Cost:  $10 includes lunch.  To make your reservations contact the Alumni Relations Office at 507-222-5842 by November 12.  All reservations need to be paid in advance by credit card.
