Led by Dr. Goldrick-Rab, a nationally recognized higher education expert, the Hope Center’s innovative research on college students’ basic needs recently sparked the national #RealCollege movement as well as national, state and local legislation to address student food and housing insecurity.

This latest in the Dialogues for Diversity series of discussions, which is hosted by the College’s Center for Equity and Social Justice, will explore the topic of equity within the nation’s education system, student success and how many students cannot access what they need to be successful. The dialogue will include time for audience questions. 

The College’s Center for Equity and Social Justice seeks to contribute to the dismantling of systems of racism and social injustice by providing ongoing opportunities for meaningful dialogue that creates awareness, promotes education and understanding and leads to transformative change, equity and social justice for all people.

The Hope Center for College, Community and Justice is a research center that seeks to transform higher education into a more effective, equitable and impactful sector using a combination of applied scientific research, technical assistance to colleges and universities, policy advising with state and federal governments, and strategic communications.
