Organized by the Achievement Gap Initiative (AGI) at Harvard University, this is the second in a series of forums that address Racial Gaps in College Access and Success. Closing achievement gaps is not merely a matter for K-12 educators. People of color are underrepresented among students who enter college; they have less success in college and complete college at a lower rate than whites. Speakers review what we know from research and suggest implications for policy and practice as well as for additional research under the AGI umbrella. Panelists include Christopher Avery, Roy E. Larsen professor of public policy, Kennedy School of Government; Bridget Terry Long, associate professor of education and economics, Harvard Graduate School of Education; and Vivian Shuh Ming Louie, assistant professor of education, Harvard Graduate School of Education.
