Policy Center’s Trostel presents on higher education’s return on investment to society

Policy Center and Economics Professor Philip Trostel is the author of the recent Lumina Foundation report “It’s Not Just the Money: The Benefits of College Education to Individuals and to Society.”

Trostel has several upcoming presentations based on this research. At the SUNY Critical Issues in Higher Education Conference on October 27, 2016 in New York City, Trostel will be a panelist in a session called “The Debt Dialogue Must be Turned on its Head” examining the issue of debt in higher education and the return on educational investment to society.

Trostel is presenting the keynote speech at the annual meeting of the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities on November 13 in Austin, Texas. The meeting is an event for public university leaders to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues from across the country, and to learn about the latest challenges and opportunities facing public universities. He will also be presenting on November 16 and 17 to the University of Arizona Board of Regents and to the University of Arizona System.
