High school graduates are projected to come from increasingly diverse backgrounds, even as overall levels plateau -- posing a challenge for colleges and universities.

Surveys

Sept. 22, 2016 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2016 Survey of College and University Admissions Directors was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup.
