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 focus on students of color, students from low-income backgrounds, and other historically marginalized populations—by providing timely research to inform public policy decisions.

Our Vision: Building a more just and equitable society through higher education
Our Mission: We drive systemic change in higher education to advance equitable outcomes and generational impact for communities historically marginalized on the basis of race, ethnicity, or income. We achieve this change through research, advocacy, policy development, and field engagement.
