Amid mounting concerns about student debt, Goucher College — for the first time in its history — is not raising tuition for the upcoming school year.
“We couldn’t do nothing, so this is the first step and it’s partly an experiment because we’re hoping that this will resonate with our community,” said Goucher President José Antonio Bowen.
The decision to freeze tuition is part of a larger effort by the college to make it more accessible to its poorest students.
“We’ve been talking a lot about affordability,” said Bowen.
