Christine Lindstrom is the Higher Education Program Director for U.S. PIRG student chapters. A 14-year veteran of Student PIRGs, she now works with the U.S. PIRG network around the country to develop and execute campaigns to secure affordable and accessible higher education. Over the past three years, she helped students win the biggest federal investment in higher education since the GI bill—the College Cost Reduction and Access Act. She helped launch a campaign to control marketing of credit cards on college campuses. Current priorities for the project include tackling the increasing reliance on private loan financing to pay for college and controlling textbook costs.<br />
Ms. Lindstrom received a BA in Latin American Studies from the University of Miami in 1992.
