Make Higher Education More Accessible

As a Trustee at Rowan College at Burlington County (RCBC), Kate spearheaded an innovative 3+1 program that allowed local students to earn a high-quality, 4-year degree for under $30,000.

For those not interested in a college track, Kate enhanced the county Workforce Development Institute to match education and training opportunities with the needs of local employers in order to ensure that her constituents could find fulfilling, good-paying jobs close to home. She will seek to enact similar programs federally.

As the first person in her family to graduate from college, Kate also knows firsthand the burden of skyrocketing student debt. On this front, she will work with members of both parties committed to bringing down the cost of college and reducing loan debt, without creating some costly, pie-in-the-sky amnesty program that the country cannot afford.
