America’s Unmet Promise: The Imperative for Equity in Higher Education

Responding to the urgent need to expand educational access and success for students from traditionally underserved groups, this publication presents an equity-minded framework that can be used throughout higher education. The authors offer a set of principles for evaluating equity and advancing institutional change, with a specific focus on improving outcomes for students affected by stratification in educational opportunity by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status.
