Title:The relevance of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the college completion agenda
Organization:National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education
Short Description:This report focuses most intently on the relevance of the AAPI population to the national college completion agenda, which is undeniably significant for today’s higher education reform effort. With this issue in mind, this research is guided by four propositions about education and social change.
Annotation:This report focuses most intently on the relevance of the AAPI population to the national college completion agenda, which is undeniably significant for today’s higher education reform effort. With this issue in mind, this research is guided by four propositions about education and social change. First, the authors argue that policy matters: it dictates funding priorities, resource usage, and federal, state, and local involvement in educational efforts. Second, they assert that institutions matter: what colleges and universities do with funding and resources has a tremendous impact on student success. Third, research matters: policymakers and institutional administrators need accurate, disaggregated data that present the real assets and needs of college students and their families. Finally, strategic action matters: now, more than ever, there is a strong public interest in institutional accountability. The authors are interested in identifying and studying areas of programs effectiveness relative to the AAPI population to inform policymaking decisions. We challenge funders, policymakers, and higher education leadership to account for AAPI assets and needs when developing and/or building upon programs and policies. At the crossroads of our domestic policies and competition in the global arena is the AAPI population, a national asset and opportunity to heed the call for a greater investment in diversity throughout the pathways, from education to the workforce.
