About Us

Studentloanjustice.Org is a grassroots, citizens organization dedicated to returning standard consumer protections to student loans.  The group was started in March, 2005, and has focused primarily on research, media outreach, and grassroots lobbying initiatives.

The group and its members have been featured on 60 Minutes, 20/20, The News Hour, CNBC, and many other television programs,  print media including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and many others as well as numerous radio and internet broadcasts. The group is also featured in two documentaries airing and screening in Fall, 2010.

The group was credited as the inspiration for The Student Borrower Bill of Rights, and has broken numerous news items in the press with its research findings regarding conflicts of interest in the student loan system, Student Debt levels, Default Rates, corporate lobbying, and other areas.

Group Founder Alan Collinge has written numerous articles, and editorials on the topic, and also published The Student Loan Scam in 2009.  He was selected as one of seven "Financial Heroes" by CNN/Money Magazine in December 2008. 

The group is funded entirely by its members, with a budget that averages less than $10,000 per year.
