For Profit with Aaron Calafato will be held at John Carroll University, Thursday, Sept. 18, 7:00 p.m. in the Lombardo Student Center’s Marinello Little Theatre. The event is free and open to the public. Invite your friends and RSVP via Facebook.
The one-man play takes on the 1 trillion dollar student debt crisis and is a vibrant portrayal of the exploitation of the American student. It’s been staged and screened over 100 times in 20 states in the past two years.
As part of its contribution to Campus Equity Week 2013, the Campaign for the Future of Higher Education has sponsored the filming of:
The film version of the performance is being offered for screening at college campuses and other venues around the country exclusively during the week of Oct. 28 – Nov. 2.
The play provides a wonderful opportunity for students, faculty, staff and community members to discuss a wide range of current issues in higher education—not just the for-profit college industry, but also the broader “for profit” mindset towards higher education today that is behind so many problems facing us, our students, and our society’s educational future.

About the play: “For Profit” is a vibrant solo-portrayal of the exploitation of the American college student and the $1 trillion student debt crisis, told through the lens of an unwilling admission adviser at a for-profit institution.
The play blends theatrical techniques of storytelling and acting, in the tradition of the late monologist Spalding Gray – The Chronicle of Education
