The New Face Of College

The 21st-century college student is likely to be older than traditional students. She's more likely to be female, working, and Hispanic or African-American. She's more likely to be a mom. She's less likely to attend college full time or finish in four years. 

We’ll explore how universities are adapting to their new students. We see how the University of Texas-El Paso, where most undergraduates are Hispanic and low-income, is becoming a top-tier research university. And we travel to a tiny college on an Indian reservation in eastern Washington that is trying to bring liberal arts to migrant farm workers.
