Cappy Hill Op Ed on Increasing Socioeconomic Diversity

I’m liking Cappy Hill, the current president of Vassar, more and more. She wasn’t there when I was a student. Now, on top of the news this week, she’s penned an opinion piece in the Washington Post on “How to increase socioeconomic diversity in college.

To increase the socioeconomic diversity of the student body, especially at America’s leading colleges and universities, more resources must be allocated to financial aid. Colleges and universities can make these decisions and commit even greater resources on their own, but the government can also create greater incentives to do so.

Amen. I’d also add, as I have below, that colleges need to be more actively involved in recruiting and retaining historically disadvantaged and poor students. Great words to hear from my alma mater.
