Demographics of single parent students focus of first Higher Ed Spotlight

​In 2011-12, U.S. colleges and universities enrolled 3.5 million students who are also single parents, a group that represents 15.2 percent of the undergraduate population. These students are the topic of the first Higher Ed Spotlight, a new infographic series from ACE’s Center for Policy Research and Strategy.

Among other topics, the infographic addresses gender, race/ethnicity, work responsibilities, family responsibilities, income and choice of institution. View it here.

Each installment of the series will cover relevant and timely issues of interest to higher education stakeholders. The infographics will be posted as PDFs on ACE’s website and are free to the public.
