Federal Higher Education Policy Priorities and the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community
National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education
The National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education (CARE), consisting of a national commission, research advisory group, and research team at New York University, aims to engage realistic and actionable discussions about the mobility and educational opportunities for Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) and how distinctions of race, ethnicity, language, and other factors play out in the day-to-day operations of America's education system. Their goal is to provide much needed and timely research on key issues and trends related to access and participation of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in higher education. By way of new and ongoing conversations among advocacy organizations, policy centers, and higher education scholars, this report focuses most intently on areas of emerging importance related to how AAPIs are positioned within the context of higher education policy priorities. It is guided by four propositions: first, the authors argue that policy matters: it dictates funding priorities, resource usage and federal, state, and local involvement in educational efforts. Second, they assert that institutions matter: what colleges and universities do with funding and resources has a tremendous impact on student success. Third, research matters: policy makers and institutional administrators need accurate, disaggregated data that present real assets and needs of college students and their families. Finally, strategic action matters: now, more than ever, there is a strong public interest in institutional accountability. The authors are interested in identifying and studying areas of program effectiveness relative to the AAPI population to inform policymaking decisions. Data Source and Methodology are appended. (Contains 12 figures, 2 tables, 7 footnotes, and 56 endnotes.)
