Students of color have not achieved equal opportunity for higher education and many of the institutions that serve them are struggling with economic and policy challenges. Some critics of the Obama Administration claim that recent accountability and financial aid policy changes would close the door to college for many deserving students. As these proposals are being discussed, we invite you to a lively forum presenting new and original empirical studies.  These seven (7) research papers examine the issues with the goal of avoiding unintended negative consequences.
