Students of color, low-income students, and those first in their family to attend college face a multitude of barriers when it comes to college enrollment and completion. Findings from the American Council on Education project, "Race and Ethnicity in Higher Education," confirm a cause for concern. Yet as sobering as such data can be, they offer opportunities for change, reasons to practice shared- and equity-minded leadership, and benchmarks to measure transformation--Actions that are especially critical given the COVID-19 pandemic and the national racial crisis. This session will provide an overview of the ACE data, and will highlight the important role that college and university leaders, including business officers, have in using data to make decisions that strengthen mission-critical efforts for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
