Ten years ago, our nation’s growing reliance on student loans wasn’t a common topic of conversation. But student debt was already a fact of life for millions of Americans, including recent college graduates, who were more likely to have loans – and owe more – than any previous generation.
We launched the Project on Student Debt in 2005 to call attention to this important issue and drive home the need for better policies to reduce the burden of student debt, especially for those with the greatest need. With the help of supporters like you, over the last 10 years we’ve fought for – and won – more affordable student loan repayment options, increases to need-based aid, and better consumer information. But student debt is still rising, and there is far more work to be done.
As TICAS celebrates our tenth anniversary, we’re renewing our commitment make college more affordable, student debt more manageable, and success more possible – nationally and in California. But we can't do it without you.

As 2015 comes to a close, I want to thank you for speaking out when it matters, and giving when you can. Working together, we’ll achieve even more in the years ahead.
From all of us at TICAS, thank you and happy holidays!
