ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Associate Professor of Economics Laura Ullrich will lead the Oct. 9 Provost's Spotlight on Scholarship Series session "For-Profit vs. Not-For-Profit Higher Education: Are Differences Driven by Schools or Students?" Each "Lunch and Learn" session will be held at 11 a.m. in Dinkins Hall Auditorium.

Ullrich, who spent the spring 2014 semester in Kosovo as a Fulbright Scholar, will explore how the increase in traditional four-year and community colleges and for-profit institutions has affected student loan debt. She also will examine the differences in student loan debt and graduation outcomes between the not-for-profit and for-profit institutions.

The inaugural Provost’s Spotlight on Scholarship Series highlights the research of five faculty members, providing the entire campus community opportunities to learn more about the work and scholarship of Winthrop educators.
