Step Up & Lead for Equity: What Higher Education Can Do to Reverse Our Deepening Divides

On April 15, 2015, AAC&U released Step Up and Lead for Equity—What Higher Education Can Do To Reverse Our Deepening Equity Divides.

The charts and quotes in the slide deck are all from this document.  All citations can be found in the folio which can also be downloaded at:

"Given our union in a democracy committed to liberty, opportunity, and justice for all, the equity divides that deface our educational system raise questions both at home and abroad about the meaning and integrity of America’s democratic promise . . . . The deep educational divides that reflect and perpetuate inequality will take concerted, systemic, transforming action to overcome." 

 — Carol Geary Schneider, AAC&U President
