Engines of Emancipation

VU International News and Reviews No. 11 August 19 2013

The American Council on Education has published a report on the role of “Minority Serving Institutions as Engines of Upward Mobility”, based on data from the Equality of Opportunity project. Overall they found that MSIs propel their students from the bottom to the top of the income distribution at higher rates than other kinds of higher education institutions, in spite of the often lower resources available at MSIs.

In this context, one may also note the recent publication by EUA on Universities’ Strategies and Approaches towards Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
