Measure 86 will boost access to higher education: Guest opinion

Oregonian
October 23rd, 2014

Everyone who wants a chance at higher education should have the opportunity. This November, there's one idea on the ballot with the best chance of ensuring access to higher education and reducing student debt — Measure 86.
As president and CEO of the Oregon State University Foundation, I know how difficult securing necessary resources for higher education can be. I support Measure 86 because when it comes to student financial aid, we need an all-hands-on-deck approach. Measure 86 gives the Legislature additional tools to fund student financial aid for university and community college students, and encourages the expansion of vocational and technical job skills training.
