Minority Access Studied


The history of minority access to higher education and how institutional policies and actions have affected access is the focus of a $380,000 grant awarded to a Warner School expert.

Warner Professor Harold Wechsler received the grant from the Spencer Foundation to extend his research on minority access to colleges.

"Our country's quest for educational equity remains elusive after all these years," he says. "We need more analytical and less polemical treatment of issues related to promoting and hindering minority access to higher education."

During the three-year project, Wechsler and graduate student assistants are analyzing a dozen colleges and universities by examining ethnic and racial histories, documents, surveys, and other materials that reveal student demographics, enrollment patterns, and institutional accommodations for minorities and women.

The study goes beyond traditional research that looks at social aspects of minority life at college and examines how minorities and women fared at municipal and state institutions.
