CARE’s report, Federal Higher Education Policy Priorities and the Asian American and Pacific Islander Community (AAPIs), focuses most intently on areas of emerging importance related to how AAPIs are positioned within the context of higher education policy priorities. This report is guided by four propositions: First, the authors argue that policy matters: it dictates funding priorities, resource usage and federal, state, and local involvement in educational efforts. Second, they assert that institutions matter: what colleges and universities do with funding and resources has a tremendous impact on student success. Third, research matters: policy makers and institutional administrators need accurate, disaggregated data that present real assets and needs of college students and their families. Finally, strategic action matters: now, more than ever, there is a strong public interest in institutional accountability. They authors are interested in identifying and studying areas of program effectiveness relative to the AAPI population to inform policy making decisions.
