Kalamazoo College President Jorge G. Gonzalez on tax plan

Kalamazoo College President Jorge G. Gonzalez was interviewed Monday, Nov. 20, on Michigan Radio’s “Stateside” program.

In an interview Monday on Michigan Radio’s “Stateside” program, Gonzalez said the provisions in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act currently under consideration are alarming because they could make college more expensive and less accessible for students and their families.

“It’s baffling to me that in a time when we are in the era of the knowledge economy, Congress is trying to impose a tax on knowledge,” he said.
