For the admissions officers, enrollment managers and presidents of American colleges and universities, few issues are as important or challenging as efforts to diversify the student body. Educators worry that many groups of students -- under-represented minority students, the disadvantaged, those whose parents didn’t go to college, and more -- are not enrolling at rates proportional to their representation in the country’s population. As a result, colleges find themselves in the middle of many debates, some of them legal and others policy-oriented, about which policies they can and should use to recruit and enroll a diverse student body.
In this free recorded webinar, Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman engage in a lively discussion on these issues. To compliment this webinar, we invite you to download our free booklet, Diversity in the Student Body, a compilation of articles and opinion essays from Inside Higher Ed offering a range of ideas and perspectives. Inside Higher Ed's Diversity in the Student Body webinar is made possible with the support of Pearson. You can download the accompanying slide deck for this webinar here.
