Examining the Student Debt Crisis in November’s Movies That Matter Film: Ivory Tower

The film Ivory Tower critically investigates higher education. The college experience provides students a supportive space to develop personally and intellectually. But as tuition skyrockets, student debt has devastating effects on students, parents, and economies for generations to come.

Our Fellowship’s Economic Justice Action Team and Gay Pustaver, of the local non-profit Money Management Counselors powered by FISC CCCS, will help lead a discussion after the movie. Pustaver has counseled many local students and families dealing with the devastation of overwhelming student loans. She also meets with students and families to help them interpret their financial aid award letters and make informed choices about accepting aid.  Our Economic Justice Action Team coordinates and participates in collaborative efforts to foster economic justice for the good of our local, regional, and national community.

About the Movies that Matter Series: The film is part of the UUFDC’s monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues. Each screening is followed by a discussion. Donations to help defray the costs of public performance licensing are appreciated. The series invites consciousnesses and intellectual inquiry, which is philosophically in tune with Unitarian Universalists beliefs. The UUFDC Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim.
