Free College Tuition Summit

Join us for a three hour candid discussion about the idea of free college tuition. Keynote remarks will be delivered by Under Secretary of Education Ted Mitchell, who will present details of the President’s proposal to make two years of community college tuition free. After a thorough discussion of that proposal and others to make college more affordable we will brainstorm on whether it is possible to build a bipartisan coalition of stakeholders that can work together to promote a free college idea.

We can't do this alone!

Our goal is to make higher education a possibility for every American, without regard to their financial circumstances.

We have a lot to do and not much time to do it, so your support is critical for our campaign to succeed. It’s with your investment that we can fundamentally reform how higher education is financed in this country, opening the doors to a more equitable society.

If you agree with our goal, our plan, and the urgency of the problem, we ask that you give what you can to help us write the next chapter in our nation’s history of continuously expanding access to universal, free education.

The Campaign for Free College Tuition is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in the State of Washington in 2014 to educate parents, students, the higher education community, policy makers and taxpayers about efforts needed to fundamentally reform our nation’s system for financing higher education. This website and CFCT’s educational outreach activities are made possible through generous individual and foundation support.
