About OUR Campaign


  • A debt-free college plan that covers not just tuition and fees but also living expenses, including food and housing.
  • Expansion of existing programs that support student success and address staffing shortages.
  • Recruitment and retention of high-quality and experienced faculty and staff – and make it possible for them to meet the needs of their students, particularly those who face the most significant challenges. 
  • Return to the historic model of public funding for public buildings on college and university campuses and include faculty and staff when assessing campus needs.


We are a coalition of students, educators, parents, union and business leaders, community supporters, public higher education faculty and staff and legislators who are organizing for a major investment in our public universities, colleges and students.
