New Resources on College Costs Available From ACE

April 16, 2012

 

​The cost of higher education is an issue of ongoing importance to students and families across the nation, as well as policymakers and political candidates. ACE has released two new publications designed to offer data and insight into this complex matter:

Putting College Costs Into Context (PDF; 335 KB) gives a brief overview on the cost of attending college and how much financial aid is available for students. It also looks at why college prices are rising and what higher education institutions are doing to contain costs.

The Anatomy of College Tuition (PDF; 1.9 MB), by Robert B. Archibald and David H. Feldman. This report is based on the authors' book, Why Does College Cost So Much? and explores an economic framework for the forces driving college tuition.

For more information about these reports, contact ACE’s Office of Public Affairs at ehennessy@acenet.edu or gtitterton@acenet.edu.
