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. Join Carleton Connects as Carleton’s Vice President and Treasurer, Fred Rogers '72 discusses how the College is addressing these challenges and offer insights about Carleton’s future.  At the end of the program, you will have the opportunity to "raise your hand" during our interactive Q&A session.


Fred A. Rogers is the Vice President and Treasurer of Carleton College and a graduate of the Class of 1972. Fred oversees all financial and business operations of the college.
