Description: Despite decades of substantial investments by the federal government, state governments, colleges and universities, and private foundations, students from low-income families and racial/ethnic minority groups continue to have substantially lower levels of postsecondary educational attainment than individuals from other groups. The State of College Access and Completion draws together the leading researchers nationwide to summarize the state of college access and success for students and provide recommendations for how institutional leaders and policymakers can effectively improve the entire spectrum of college access and completion.This much-needed book calls explicit attention to the state of college access and success not only for traditional college-age students, but also for the substantial and growing number of "nontraditional" students. It describes trends in various outcomes along the pathway from college access to completion, documenting persisting gaps in these outcomes based on students‘ demographic characteristics. Well-known chapters authors synthesize what is known and not known from existing research about how to improve student success, and offer recommendations for strategies to raise student attainment, making this an important and timely resource for graduate students, scholars, and researchers in higher education.
