These Colleges Give Minority Students a Better Chance at Upward Mobility

These Colleges Give Minority Students a Better Chance at Upward Mob...

December 18, 2020

Marcheta P. Evans, President, Bloomfield College writes: Upward mobility is a promise that many students and their families count on when sending their students to college. As part of the process of social mobility in America is the expectation that earning a college degree will be the foundation on which the next generation will be better off economically as compared to the prior generation. This promise for upward mobility is deeply rooted in the American psyche, and especially for first-generation college students and families of color who represent historically underserved populations in higher education.

Doubling the Pell Grant to Promote Access to Opportunity, Higher Ed

Doubling the Pell Grant to Promote Access to Opportunity, Higher Ed

December 17, 2020

Miguel Martinez-Saenz, President, St. Francis College in Brooklyn writes: Promoting social mobility and equal access to opportunities must center on underserved and low-income students. This starts with doubling the Pell Grant, which Biden’s plan includes, rather than a blanket “free college” policy for public institutions. Our democracy requires it.

Making Higher Education Great Again

Making Higher Education Great Again

December 14, 2020

Glenn C. Altschuler and David Wippman, President, Hamilton College write: As President-elect Joe Biden prepares to name his secretary of education, it seems like a good time to offer the new administration a higher education to do list. Admittedly, getting legislation through a highly partisan, closely divided Congress will be difficult, but the new secretary and president can — and should — use executive orders to eliminate harmful policies, initiate reforms, and change the conversation about higher education.

November 11, 2020

Paul LeBlanc, President, Southern New Hampshire University writes: Well before the pandemic struck, we could see the data. Too many students were taking on too much debt to attend our traditional residential campus, or they were not coming at all. Maybe worse were those students who attended, took on debt, but left without completing, joining the 36 million Americans with some credits but no credential.
