Closing Gaps in Higher Education Attainment

Draws on a poll of higher education leaders in which they shared views on higher education attainment gaps. Although most higher education leaders agree that closing the gaps in higher education attainment is a bigger concern now than a year ago, nearly all also agree that college leaders can do more to close the gaps. Higher education leaders have varying views about the “single most important action” that will close gaps in attainment based on family income and most believe that college leaders have insufficient incentives and resources to close the gaps.
