Financing the Future: The Law and Politics of Student Debt in American Higher Education @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Oct 20 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm
Financing the Future: The Law and Politics of Student Debt in American Higher Education @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law |  |  |

After home mortgages, student loans are now the second largest consumer finance market in the country. Student debt is reshaping the way the American middle class approaches higher education, work, purchasing a home, and even retirement. Law schools in particular are a bellwether in the student loan debate. During the Obama administration Congress, the Department of Education, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau adopted a variety of limited legal reforms to student lending. Despite these limited reforms student debt still looms large over the future of millions of Americans. Will the Trump administration signal a shift in student lending? What does the future hold for America’s struggling student borrowers?

Women in Safety: Beyond My Wildest @ WCF Insurance
Oct 20 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Women in Safety: Beyond My Wildest @ WCF Insurance |  |  |

Join the Utah Safety Council’s Women in Safety group for a special presentation by Peggy Larsen, Senior Vice President of Marketing for WCF Insurance. She will be sharing her amazing story about rebellion, tragedy, and finding strength.

Peggy Larsen grew up in the parched town of Barstow, California, the daughter of poor-as-dirt Oklahoma farmers. A runaway hippie at age 13, she was pregnant, married and suffered domestic abuse by age 17. With a baby to feed and no college degree, she took a filing job at the local insurance agency. She never could have guessed that she’d survive the tragedies to come, or that she’d go on to become senior vice president for a billion-dollar company.

Peggy is currently the Senior Vice President in charge of sales and marketing for WCF Insurance. Peggy is responsible for business retention, sales and development of both direct and agency business as well as the advertising and PR of WCF.

In 2016, the Utah Safety Council created a Women in Safety group to provide a new resource for women to discuss the topics and challenges facing their industry. Learn more about the group and upcoming events at UTAHSAFETYCOUNCIL.ORG.
