Oregon is currently in the lowest percentile across the United States for funding of Post Secondary Higher Education. As a college student at PSU and a resident of the 5th congressional District this is very important to me, because if tuition continues to raise I risk not being able to finish my degree and unstable funding from the state means I struggle to even make it through the year with out loosing funding half way through.
What are your plans to support Higher Education funding in Oregon? What are your thoughts on the funding restructuring models that PSU, OU and OSU are looking at to seek alternative sources of funding?
Finally what are your plans to support or expand federal programs like the Federal Pell Grant or new job training programs in the community colleges and universities in Oregon?
