Low-income and Minority Students in College
The Nevada System of Higher Education is teaming with national experts to figure out how to draw more of Nevada's low-income and minority students to college. We continue our summer series on education with a look at the Educational Equity and Postsecondary Student Success project. Researchers out of the University of Southern California's Center for Urban Education will be working with Nevada's schools to identify solutions to getting our increasing minority and low-income students to and through college.
But, how do we get minorities and low-income students to college? And what will it take to mobilize the community and education system as a whole to embrace this effort? We talk with Nevada leaders about how to do that.
