U.S. Department of Education, Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development and Office of the Under Secretary Advancing diversity and inclusion in higher education. Washington, D.C., 2016. Retrieved from http://www.ed.gov/
The Department of Education in conjunction with the White House released this report in November 2016 to celebrate the efforts of the Obama Administration to advance diversity and inclusion. It aims to explore the ways to further those efforts together. Key findings demonstrate that higher education is a pathway for social mobility; that racial and ethnic disparities exist in higher education enrollment; that gaps in college opportunity contribute to diminished ability to earn more; and that the interaction of race and ethnicity, family income, and parental education can influence educational and labor market outcomes.
