Hildreth Institute

Hildreth Institute (HI), a non-profit organization, was established in 2018 to pull the curtain back on the unsustainable higher education system in America – the direct result of a flawed financial aid system. HI aims to increase awareness among students, families, and higher education institutions about the student debt crisis. Field First advises HI’s work on two fronts, its legislative advocacy and student organizing. Passing legislation on a statewide level requires cultivating and maintaining a coalition of active allies, and Field First offers HI unique expertise in coalition building across the Commonwealth. On their student organizing program, Field First provides strategic planning and support to grow a student-led #ZeroDebt future on college campuses.
