Degrees of Separation Awareness Campaign
Many believe obtaining a college degree is the bridge to a successful career and other opportunities. But with numerous college graduates currently unemployed, underemployed, and in student loan debt - many find themselves separated from the opportunities they expected. That’s why Degrees of Separation was founded.
Degrees of Separation is a campaign to raise awareness surrounding the issues of unemployment and underemployment among college graduates. It is our mission to effect change and find tangible solutions to help transform a generation of college grads plagued by these issues.
This much we know: College pays. You can lose your house to foreclosure, but never your education. Four-year college graduates’ pay advantage over high school grads has doubled over the past 30 years.
If money for tuition is tight, the advice goes, borrow what you need. Students have been listening. In 2010 student debt exceeded credit-card debt for the first time. In 2011 it surpassed auto loans. In March, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau announced that student debt had passed $1 trillion. It grew by $300 billion from the third quarter of 2008 even as other forms of debt shrank by $1.6 trillion, according to a separate tabulation by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
