Higher Education Access and the American Workforce | Radcliffe Day 2022

Access to higher education—from associate programs at community colleges to doctoral degrees offered by large universities—can be a powerful force for individual empowerment, social mobility, and equity. And so it has been for many graduates. Yet this potential has never been available to all Americans, and today we are increasingly aware of the ways in which our post-secondary education system still falls short of our highest aspirations, leaving some students behind and even reinforcing longstanding inequities. This expert panel, moderated by Raj Chetty, envisions bold new ways forward while engaging the critical question of how to build an educational system that is accessible and equitable and that enables students of all backgrounds, interests, and abilities to secure stable livelihoods as members of a changing workforce.
