Pace University takes a hyper-intentional approach to enrolling underrepresented students.
Reported by Education Dive, Pace’s ranking as the top college in the country for upward economic mobility comes from their intentionality in doing so. Removing application and enrollment barriers such as student and family income. Building a pipeline through high school visits to underrepresented communities. And expanding the pool through dual-admission programs with area community colleges.
The takeaway? Merely wishing to have more diverse representation within your student base, vs. taking actionable steps to do so like Pace is the difference you’re looking to see.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
