Paper: Race Connected to Student Borrowing Trends

July 30, 2019

A brief released Monday in the journal Education Researcher finds that racial differences in student borrowing have diverged over the past two decades. Since 2000, Hispanic students have been less likely and black students more likely to borrow than white students, the brief finds.
