State budgets are consistently shortchanging underrepresented college students, according to new research from the Institute for College Access & Success (TICAS).
While college plays a critical role in providing opportunities for economic mobility, alarming inequities in degree attainment by race persist. The report says those gaps are exacerbated by state funding patterns that consistently funnel the least money to schools that serve the highest proportions of Black, Latino, and other students of color.
