College Inc

In College, Inc., documents the promise and explosive growth of the for-profit higher education industry. Through interviews with school executives, government officials, admissions counselors, former students and industry observers, the film explores the tension between the industry — which says it’s helping an underserved student population obtain a quality education and marketable job skills — and critics who charge the for-profits with churning out worthless degrees that leave students with a mountain of debt.  Watch this film and share your experience with college recruitment.

Funded by a Fulbright grant, she spent ten months in Honduras, learning about this staple food that is at the heart of women’s development and community development in the villages of Iriona.
