Basic Needs: Insecurity of Today’s College Student

March 12, 2023 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Liz Franczyk, Director, MATC FAST Fund.

The Local 212 MATC Believe in Students FAST Fund is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) students experiencing economic emergencies, in order to ensure their ability to remain enrolled and graduate. MATC is the state’s only majority minority college with many who are economically disadvantaged. Most are working and the majority are women, mainly single mothers. Even before the pandemic MATC reported that almost 20% of its students are housing insecure and more than 50% food insecure. Sixty-three percent qualify for low-income Pell Grants. Pell Grants once financed 100% of the cost of a two-year college, now cover less than 60%. FAST Fund aims to help fill that gap and cover emergency needs that would potentially derail a student’s education.     Financial Help | MATC Local 212 FAST Fund           Host:  Trent Muller

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
