UMaine undergraduate pens op-ed for BDN about increasing state funding for UMaine

Hope Carroll, an undergraduate communications student at the University of Maine, wrote an op-ed for the Bangor Daily News about how UMaine needs more state funding to attract prospective undergraduate students. “It is essential that high school students are provided better education surrounding student loan debt. In turn, the state of Maine must invest more in their college students and the University of Maine System should aggressively promote itself as the most affordable option,” wrote Carroll, a member of the Maine chapter of the national Scholars Strategy Network, which brings together scholars across the country to address public challenges and their policy implications.
