In a new research report, Segregation Forever? The Continued Underrepresentation of Black & Latino Undergraduates at the Nation’s 101 Most Selective Public Colleges and Universities, The Education Trust analyzed federal education and U.S. Census data to show that most of these selective and best-funded public colleges enroll a smaller percentage of Black students today than they did 20 years ago, and that while enrollment of Latino students has improved, it has not kept pace with the Latino population growth in most states.
The report includes 10 actions for campus leaders and policymakers to take to ensure more Black and Latino students have the chance to attend our nation’s selective public colleges.
In the next chat series, August 26, PAC is partnering with Ed Trust to discuss inequitable access to higher education in Texas. We’ll be diving into Ed Trust’s critical report, Segregation Forever: The Underrepresentation of Black and Latino Graduates at the Nation’s 101 Most Selective Public Colleges and Universities.
