Achieving Success in Postsecondary Education

Issue Areas

Education

As institutions of higher education struggle with increasing costs and decreasing public funding, many students are unable to complete their degrees or are left with unsustainable amounts of debt. Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors and the TIAA Institute partnered to look at the landscape of student debt in the U.S. as well as trends and innovative approaches in private funding of higher education.

For donors and policymakers interested in supporting postsecondary education and financial security, these reports provide a detailed analysis of the state of student debt in the U.S., challenging business trends that universities and colleges encounter and qualitative and quantitative trends in postsecondary education funding.

Together, we hope these resources advance the conversation on how to support college completion, avoid the burden of over-indebtedness and improve financial security for all students.
