    This Perspectives piece describes how the 2008-2009 credit crunch dramatically changed the structure of debt financing for higher education. Bond investors and credit enhancers, who were previously willing to accept fairly loose covenants and security, have imposed tougher covenants on colleges with low or moderate credit ratings. In addition, the credit crunch of 2008 and 2009 severely limited access to short-term credit markets; this forced many colleges to convert long-term investments into cash. Download your copy today!
