Strengthening College Access and Success Through Affordability

March 6th
10:00am PT

K-12, higher education, and policy leaders have a significant role in reducing barriers to college so that more Latinx, Black, underrepresented Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander (NHPI), and American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) students are uplifted to go to college and succeed.

The cost of college represents a significant barrier to access and completion for students — particularly Latinx and Black students. All students deserve the opportunity to access financial aid to afford to attend college. As part of our Affirming Equity, Ensuring Inclusion, Empowering Action national initiative, we held a webinar on Wednesday, March 6, 2024 for higher education scholars and experts to discuss two new briefs that outline how specific college affordability policies and practices at the federal, state, and institutional levels can be strengthened to close racial equity gaps in college affordability and completion and support widespread diversity and representation in higher education.
