Higher Education Policy Analysis
I have been a student of higher education opportunity since 1970. My policy research focuses on
opportunity for higher education and training, and the ways federal, state and institutional policy
fosters or impedes access to those opportunities. I have special concern for populations that are
under-represented in higher education: students from low income families that are usually the
first in their families to attend college; under-represented minorities including blacks, Hispanics
and American Indians; and boys. My studies have addressed academic and financial preparation
for college, access, choice, persistence and attainment, and the labor force transition of college
graduates. I am particularly interested in private and public finance of higher education
opportunity and the consequences of the cost-shift from taxpayers to students that has been
underway since 1980. I research, write and publish a monthly research newsletter devoted to
analysis and reporting on the demographics, sociology, history, politics and economics of
educational opportunity after high school.
