Race & Ethnicity in Higher Education: 2020 Supplement

November 10, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EST

Higher education in the United States is more diverse now than at any time in its history. However, despite the growth in access to higher education, the opportunities and experiences of students, faculty, and staff in higher education continue to vary along racial and ethnic lines. Understanding these variations is vital to ensuring that higher education fulfills its role in promoting social and economic mobility.

Join the American Council on Education for the online release of the new report: Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education: 2020 Supplement. This supplement builds upon Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education: A Status Report, and includes five major topics:

  • The academic experiences of students prior to college
  • Graduate and professional education
  • Postsecondary career and technical education
  • Student loan debt and repayment
  • Postsecondary faculty and staff

The report also seeks to address the ​dearth of data available for Native students, highlighting the role that Tribal Colleges and Universities play in serving N​ative students and communities.​
