Abstract

Over the past three years, the number of Black and Latino undergraduates enrolled in four-year colleges grew far faster than the enrollment of white students, and success rates for both groups also increased. Certainly, more improvement is necessary. The author argues that if more colleges and universities can match the improvement patterns seen at the leading institutions profiled in this report, closing the college completion gap is within the nation’s reach.
