State University of New York chancellor Nancy Zimpher and the SUNY board of trustees announced on Tuesday the SUNY Smart Track campaign to combat student debt throughout New York and set a national model as college students across the country are taking on more loan debt than ever before.

SUNY Smart Track will reduce debt among students at the system’s 64 colleges and universities. It helps educate students from the time they decide how much to borrow to obtaining a job after graduating that will enable them to pay off their student loans.

It will also work with students who are at a high risk for default during their college tenure to complete their degree.
