Students deserve an education, not debt.

The RISE UP campaign, created by the British Columbia Federation of Students, aims to amplify the voices of students in the fight for fair and affordable education.

High tuition fees, including the unfair, overreliance on international students, to fund BC’s public post-secondary institutions has created a student debt crisis that must be addressed.

It is up to us to fight for a reduction in tuition fees, the regulation of international tuition fee increases and more financial aid. This is all possible if the government steps up to provide adequate funding for the post-secondary system.

This is all possible if students take action together.
