Congratulations to Daniel Barkowitz, assistant vice president, financial aid and veteran affairs, who was appointed to the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA) National Commission on Equity in Admissions and Financial Aid. This national panel of leaders and researchers from across higher education, policy and civil rights organizations will develop proposals for reimagining financial aid and college admission systems and eliminating racial inequity in postsecondary educational access.
Priority areas the panel will examine include:
- The college-entrance pipeline, from student recruitment and college advising through the application process and admission criteria;
- Postsecondary financial aid requirements; and
- The role of racial equity in postsecondary enrollment.
The panel aims to complete its analyses and release three sets of recommendations this summer: a guide for colleges centered around racial/ethnic inclusion, a related guide for postsecondary institutional leaders and recommendations for federal and state policymakers for an equity-based college transition.
