Center for Consumer Advocacy

Launched in January 2016, the Center for Consumer Advocacy at American Student Assistance® (ASA) advocates for consumers in the college financing and repayment process with the aim of widening public understanding of this educational topic as one of wider economic concern.  The Center conducts research and participates in policy discussions on critical student debt issues to help support our work advocating to ensure students of all backgrounds have the opportunity to succeed in college and beyond, unhampered by crippling student debt.

At the time of the Center’s creation, ASA CEO Paul Combe commented, “This new Center brings together some of ASA’s most experienced leaders to serve as ‘futurists.’  Our vision is for a world with zero student loan struggles, where no student fails to realize the full potential of education because of finances. Through this new Center, we will use our experience, customer insights, real world practice, and research to identify rising trends among higher education consumers, and advocate for solutions that stem problems at the root before they can affect future generations.”
