Our Work

The Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) is committed to improving college access and success in higher education for all students—with a special focus on underserved populations—by providing timely research to inform public policy decisions.

We envision a world in which all people, regardless of background or circumstance, have the opportunity to reach their full potential by participating and succeeding in higher education.

To achieve this vision, we produce high-quality research, lead evidence-based initiatives, and advocate data-driven, student-centered policies.
