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

America’s persistent gaps in education, income, and wealth are widening, and the fastest-growing segments of our population are the least likely to have the opportunities they need to succeed. Higher education must focus more urgently on equity, bringing what is known about closing achievement gaps together with what is known about advancing high-quality student learning outcomes. This publication builds the case for challenging the status quo and for making the most empowering forms of college learning available to all students.
