Examining Racial and Ethnic Diversity in American Higher Education: A Public Policy Talking Points Memo
Kinkead, J. Clint
Online Submission
Most higher education scholars associate access to higher education with the Associate Colleges sector. While Associate College (ACs), better known to the public as community colleges have a long standing and well documented relationship with access, regional universities are also agents of access. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching terms these "regional" institutions as Master's Colleges and Universities (MCUs). From the data presented in this work, I argue that the ambitious goals of the American Graduation Initiative cannot be reached without the collaboration of these two institutional types.
