    What are the implications of growing debt for colleges?

    • Not just about enrollment

    • Alumni repayment and “brand tail”

    • Although donations grew by 18% in 2005, “The percentage of alumni making gifts declined”

  • ASA Study with Miami University of Ohio

    • “Student Debt and Alumni Giving”

  • (ASA’s report on student debt and alumni giving is available in the “Press Room” at www.amsa.com. Click on “Reports & Studies.”)

    Debt management service as a borrower right l.jpg
    Debt Management Service as a Borrower Right

    • America has chosen debt as the primary method for funding access to higher education

    • You get what you measure

    • Access doesn’t end until the loan is repaid

    • If federal policy helps get them into debt, it is a federal responsibility to provide assistance to help them get out of debt

    • Education Debt Management = Entitlement

    What is education debt management l.jpg
    What is Education Debt Management?

    • Effective education debt management is not just due diligence with a prescribed amount of letters and phone calls

    • Borrower based for all federal loans, source of capital is irrelevant

    • It’s about using federal college loans as “teachable moments”:

      • Debt Management is a “contact sport”

      • Use continuum of intervention / education activity (proactive and reactive) to target, engage, and impact the borrower’s financial wellness

      • It is proactive and focused on getting the right information to the right borrower at the right time

        • Moments of Truth

      • It is individualized and personalized

      • Uses CRM tools
