Stand Up to The Textbook Industry
Over the last decade, the cost of college textbooks has soared. Since 2006, the cost of a college textbook increased by 73% - over four times the rate of inflation. Today, individual textbooks often cost over $200, sometimes as high as $400. For millions of students, that means choosing between food and books, working longer hours, or going without the course materials and struggling to succeed.

Stand Up to Big Banks
US PIRG Higher Education Project was launched in 1994 on the premise that affordable, accessible higher education is critical for our nation’s future. Unfortunately, today’s higher education system is anything but that. In the past few decades, the cost of a college degree has increased four times the rate of inflation. More than 71% of graduates leave college with debt, at an average of almost $30,000. As a nation, we hold almost $1.3 trillion in student loan debt.

Stand Up for Students
A well-run student government helps drive student life, shape campus policies, and speak out for students’ needs both on and off campus. The Student Government Resource Center provides student government leaders with the training and resources to succeed in that mission, from running productive meetings to winning changes in campus policy. We give student governments the skills and know-how to accomplish their goals, develop stronger organizations, and be effective advocates.

Stand Up for The Environment
Imagine yourself organizing a town hall meeting on solar power. Or imagine releasing a hard-hitting research report on power plant pollution. Or picture yourself building a community coalition around clean water or fracking. Imagine building the organizational power—the funds, the membership, the activist base and so on—that it takes to keep all of this critical work going for the long haul.
