Convergence: Trends Threatening to Narrow College Opportunity in America
Author: Lara K. Couturier and Alisa F. Cunningham
The report tracks a diverse array of factors at the federal, state, and institutional levels that are likely to converge in the coming decade with potentially serious negative consequences on higher education opportunity for low-income, minority, and other historically underserved populations. The authors contend that without a comprehensive and coordinated plan of action, the consequences on the nation’s economic, social, and cultural well-being could be profound, leaving the United States less prepared to compete in the global economy.
