As part of its continuing commitment to access, equity, and diversity in higher education, the American Council on Education is pleased to launch the Diversity Matters in U.S. Higher Education issue brief series. The goal of this series is to provide campus leaders with timely, cutting-edge, and actionable information they can share with the members of their campus community on a broad range of topics revolving around diversity and inclusion in U.S. higher education.
The inaugural brief, The Education Gap: Understanding African American and Hispanic Attainment Disparities in Higher Education, explores some of the critical factors associated with postsecondary attainment disparities for African American and Hispanic students.
The second brief in the series, Raising Voices, Lifting Leaders: Empowering Asian Pacific Islander American Leadership in Higher Education, was created to bring national attention to the scarcity of Asian Pacific Islander American leaders in higher education, highlight the barriers to Asian Pacific Islander American leadership, and present a call to action for increasing representation by the Asian Pacific Islander American community in higher education leadership positions.
Topics for future briefs in this series include:
- Strategic Diversity Leadership
- Post-Baccalaureate Success for Racial/Ethnic Minorities in U.S. Higher Education
