Episode 19: Student Basic Needs
One out of three Kentucky undergraduates is classified as a student with low income. While financial aid can help with tuition and fee costs for these students, often they are left struggling to pay for food and housing. In this episode, we talk to Dr. Lilly Massa-McKinley, executive director of the Kentucky Student Success Collaborative, about how the state is approaching this problem and CPE's latest report, Kentucky’s Strategy and Recommendations for Addressing Student Basic Needs.
