JPAM Special Event:A Closer Look at the Biden Administration's Student Debt Relief Plan

02:00 PM - 04:30 PM

Join APPAM, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM), and special guests for a panel discussion on the Biden Administration's proposed Student Debt Forgiveness Plan as we explore the benefits and drawbacks of this historic and controversial proposal.


The plan, announced in August 2022, aims to provide one-time relief to millions of low- and middle-income families burdened with student loan debt. However, the plan has faced legal challenges from critics who argue that it oversteps the boundaries of executive authority, and these challenges are set to be heard by the Supreme Court in February 2023. Regardless of the Supreme Court's decision, the Biden administration appears determined to pursue some form of a relief program that would aim to reduce student debt payments for millions of Americans in the future. As the legal battles continue and the fate of the original proposed plan remains uncertain, our panel offers a unique opportunity to gain insights from two experts on the intricacies of the administration’s approach to providing debt relief, as well as its potential impact on both the economy and society. Don't miss out on this timely and thought-provoking discussion about the future of student debt relief.
