Advancing Your Student Success and Equity Goals

Despite decades of focus on access to higher education and significant investment in broad student success initiatives, demographic disparities in persistence and completion remain. Unfortunately, too many academic leaders only focus on these lagging indicators of success, without recognizing the factors that contribute to racial, socioeconomic, and gender gaps in student outcomes.

As a result, most initiatives are not connected to root cause drivers of the disparities. Solving the persistent problem of demographic disparities will require institutional leaders to look critically at their student success policies and practices, and to commit to making the reforms necessary to maximize a return on education for all students.
