FAIR SHOT: Cardin to Host Discussion on College Affordability with Students, Faculty at CCBC Dundalk

Monday, February 9 at 1:00 PM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin will lead a roundtable discussion at the Community College of Baltimore County Dundalk Campus (CCBC Dundalk) on college affordability and President Obama’s recent proposal to make community college tuition-free for responsible students.

“All Americans deserve a fair shot at success — particularly our students, who are trying to create a better future for themselves,” said Senator Cardin. “President Obama’s ‘America’s College Promise’ proposal, from which an estimated 9 million students could benefit each year, holds the potential to positively redefine the norms of American public education. I look forward to discussing it and other innovative ideas with students and faculty at CCBC Dundalk.”
