Kalamazoo Chamber of Commerce Panel on Higher Ed Includes K President

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.
