Controversies in College Admissions: Access, Honesty, Equity and Excellence
September 28-29, 2020
College Admissions processes and measures have continued to attract considerable attention through the media. Issues arise when the public questions the ethics and honesty of admission decisions and who is accepted. It is critical to ensure access, honesty, and equity in the process, while continuing to achieve excellence in our future classes. With admissions policies in the national spotlight, colleges must consider and evaluate their current admissions goals and practices, but where should they start?
At this research-based symposium, our goal is to bring together experts from across the country to explore potential new models for college admissions, including standardized tests, the value of increasing student diversity, and the role financial aid could play in optimizing admissions goals. Nine national speakers will look at recent trends and explore potential new models for college admissions. We believe these topics will spark important conversations.
