College Meltdown Resources

[Updated December 4, 2020)

People who read the College Meltdown are missing a great deal of information if they are using the mobile format. I'm putting information here that you can see in the standard format.

The most important links for me are in the section titled Activists, Coalitions, Innovators, and Alternative Voices; these people are trying to make a difference and some can use your support. If you think anybody else should be included in the first section, please comment here or email me at CollegeMeltdown@protonmail.com

This article also includes my updated Bibliography of the College Meltdown. While all of the references are important, I have bolded some of the most vital books, from AJ Angulo's Diploma Mills to Craig Steven Wilder's Ebony and Ivy.  Books are located at the bottom of this article.
