This blog is a place to discuss issues related to the role of income in higher education and the Economic Diversity of Colleges database. The database is the first publicly-available source of college-level information on student income, race and ethnicity, loan and grant usage, and over 128 other variables. The goals of both economicdiversity.org and economicdiversity.info are:
- To make public the extent to which American colleges and universities enroll undergraduates from various economic, ethnic and racial backgrounds;
- To encourage discussion and examination of economic diversity and related issues; and,
- To identify ways to improve the quality and use of data related to access and success in higher education.
