Up to Us is a national campus competition that educates students about the national debt and specifically student debt. It seeks to empower students to make more of their time on campus and to learn about what debt means for America's future. The Clinton Foundation, Net Impact and the Peter G Peterson Foundation sponsor the campaign. In the fall semester, we will be hosting a social media campaign around My 2 Cents Day to get students motivated and interested in learning about their part in the economic future of America. In the spring semester, we will be hosting a longer campaign with more events delving into what types of debt are faced by different Americans and how we are all affected by debt. If the campaign is successful, our team from UIC will be recognized at the Clinton Global Initiative University meeting in San Francisco, CA!
