Welcome to Occupy Rhode Island Campuses, made up of colleges and universities across RI. As of now, we are students and faculty from Rhode Island College, University of Rhode Island, Brown University, and Providence College. We operate in order to address issues at our respective institutions and the broken higher education system at large. The last few decades have seen skyrocketing tuition rates with no end in sight, active corporatization of our learning institutions, and student debt at its highest. These issues have affected the lives of all students by challenging their chance at upward mobility and jeopardize the quality of our education. In order to prevent steady increases in our tuition as well as piling and unforgiving student debt, students must raise their voices and hold the ones making critical decisions accountable for their actions. We invite members of all Rhode Island colleges and universities to take part in the movement. This is a movement for you, let your voice be heard!
