Indiana University - Bloomington. Equity Snapshot
Institute for Higher Education Policy
Public flagship universities were established to provide an excellent education to their states' residents and are therefore well-positioned to enhance social and economic mobility within their states. Yet in many cases, too few low-income students and students of color have access to these elite colleges and the opportunities they provide. This analysis of racial and socioeconomic equity at Indiana University -- Bloomington (IU Bloomington) finds large and growing gaps in college access, as well as troubling gaps in college completion, by race and socioeconomic status. To serve as a catalyst for mobility and equity for the state of Indiana, IU Bloomington must do a better job enrolling and graduating low-income students and students of color.
