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.

Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics.

On Thursday, Oct. 6, Inside Higher Ed presented a free webinar to discuss the results of the survey. View the webinar here.

The Inside Higher Ed survey of admissions directors was made possible in part by support from Hobsons, Jenzabar, NRCCUA, TimeTrade and the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
