The average student debt with which some K students graduate “is comparable to a new Ford Focus,” Kalamazoo College President Eileen B. Wilson-Oyelaran said today. “That Focus depreciates the minute you drive out of the dealer,” she added. “But that degree continues to appreciate over time.” Wilson-Oyelaran spoke as a member of a panel discussion on higher education topics sponsored by the Kalamazoo Regional Chamber of Commerce. She was joined by the presidents of Western Michigan University and Kalamazoo Valley Community College. Read about the discussion in this Nov. 1 Kalamazoo Gazette/MLive article.
