The nation needs to cultivate a larger and more diverse science, technology, engineering, and mathematics STEM workforce. Given the rationale outlined in Chapter 2 , it can be argued that Minority Serving Institutions MSIs are underutilized resources to help address this urgent national need.
This is followed by a discussion on what makes MSIs diverse, including the ethnic makeup of their student bodies, faculty, and leadership. Gaining a stronger understanding of MSIs, their faculty, and students will help decision makers, funders, and other stakeholders of higher education and workforce development make more informed decisions on how best to support these institutions as they prepare their students for the workforce.
For more than years, MSIs have had a presence in the higher education landscape, but this presence has expanded rapidly over the past few decades. These institutions now exist across all regions, in nearly every state and territory, and range in terms of size, student populations, physical space, and geographical location i. Based on analyses by the American Council on Education for this report, there are more than federally designated MSIs that represent approximately 14 percent of all degree-granting, Title IV-eligible institutions of higher education.
These institutions carry a significant postsecondary load for the United States and create educational opportunities that in many cases would not otherwise exist Espinosa et al.
MSIs are traditionally defined by one of two overarching categories: historically defined or enrollment-defined institutions Tables and Historically defined MSIs were established with the express purpose of providing access to higher education for a specific minority group Espinosa et al.
Rather, this legislation provides federal support for these institutions. Department of Education. Five other MSI types are federally designated based on student enrollment and institutional expenditure thresholds:.
Two caveats should be highlighted. Second, there is substantial heterogeneity in institutional characteristics, not only between MSIs but also within each type. See Box for additional discussion. These caveats should be considered when collecting, analyzing, communicating, and reviewing data on MSIs.
The U. On the other hand, groups that advocate on behalf of MSIs—particularly MSIs that are enrollment defined—take into account undergraduate enrollment thresholds when identifying MSIs and not federal eligibility under the law. A specified list of allowable activities gears this funding toward institutional capacity building, improving student success, and expanding educational opportunities for low-income students Gasman et al.
A number of historical and contemporary texts go into depth about the beginnings of the various MSI types, including profiles of specific institutions and the overall contributions of MSIs to their students and communities e. Their unique characteristics, and notable or recent activity in STEM, are also discussed. As noted above, HBCUs and TCUs are defined as historical in that they were established with the express purpose of serving specific populations, namely, African Americans and Native Americans, respectively.
Table displays the two historically defined MSI types, their associated acronyms, the pieces of legislation by which each category was established, and their federal definitions. Prior to the Civil War, African Americans were denied access to structured postsecondary education throughout much of the United States. In , the Morrill Act 2 extended higher education opportunities to broad segments of the U. This legislation applied to freed citizens only.
These advocates helped establish 70 schools of higher education between and Hawkins Funding for HBCUs expanded as a result of the Second Morrill Act in , 4 which required segregated public higher education systems to establish land-grant institutions for African American students when such institutions were created for White students only U.
Department of Education They vary in size, curricular focus, traditions, and other characteristics, but they share the mission of preparing and empowering African American students to succeed in higher education. Some observers have argued that one of the most impactful practices of HBCUs is their dedication to maintain an institutional culture of success e.
This long-standing commitment to expect, cultivate, and celebrate success has helped HBCUs prepare African American students to reach their full academic potential. Nonetheless, many research questions related to HBCUs warrant further exploration, as discussed elsewhere in this report. TCUs were established by individual Native American tribes with a core mission to sustain tribal cultures, traditions, and languages, while bringing education, social, and economic opportunities to Native Americans AIHEC At schools with a high population of Native American students, all courses, even those without an explicit cultural focus, are designed from a Native American perspective AIHEC As described by Stull et al.
Grant-funding opportunities and partnerships with federal agencies. Indigenous-focused organizations may provide different total counts of TCUs, which speaks to the complex nature of data collection and reporting for MSIs.
Department of Agriculture and U. Department of Energy have enabled TCUs to expand their STEM programming; offer new degree options in the fields of information technology, environmental science, and science education; and provide research internship opportunities for their students Native Science Report ; PCAST See Chapter 5 for additional strategies used by TCUs to support student success.
Intentional federal legislation and grant programming have served an essential role in stimulating this growth. In the enrollment-defined or enrollment-driven MSIs, if and when a given institution meets an undergraduate enrollment threshold for a certain population of students, it is designated as the appropriate MSI type. Federal eligibility also requires that these institutions have comparatively low general and educational expenditures, an amount determined annually by the U.
Other criteria include that they are eligible for Title IV funding 12 and are degree-granting, public or private nonprofit institutions. Established between and through various pieces of legislation, there are currently five enrollment-defined MSI types Table In , the founding members of the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities HACU self-defined HSIs as a designated group of colleges and universities with an intentional focus to serve a high population of Hispanic students.
HACU ; Valdez Based on data, of the HSIs, roughly two-thirds were public and just under one-half were two-year institutions Excelencia in Education HSIs show considerable variability in size and focus, and range from small private institutions to large public research universities. Some institutions, such as Boricua College in New York, were founded with the mission to serve Hispanic populations; however, the majority have become HSIs because of a fast-growing Hispanic population in and around the local and regional communities that they serve.
As a result, the number of HSIs continues to grow as national demographics change, with more HSIs located in regions of the country where Hispanic population growth is concentrated see Box While HSIs represent 15 percent of all nonprofit colleges and universities, they enroll the majority of Hispanic college students Excelencia in Education HSIs also show considerable diversity in their non-Hispanic enrollments; ranging from predominantly White to predominantly African American and other underrepresented populations.
In recent years, there has been a concerted effort to build the capacity of HSIs to enroll, retain, and graduate more students—especially Hispanic students—in the STEM fields. In , two pieces of legislation provided guid-. Augustine College Illinois. Became Pub. First, the Consolidated Appropriations Act Pub.
At the time of this report, these initiatives were too new to assess their effectiveness. According to the U. As a rapidly growing demographic group within the United States, the AAPI population is expected to reach roughly 50 million people by 18 U.
Census Bureau Moreover, between and , AAPIs experienced a percent increase in two- and four-year college enrollment, a number that is projected to increase by 35 percent, cumulatively, over the next 10 years Vollman Although they have a number of common attributes, AAPI students are a diverse group of individuals.
They originate from more than 50 ethnic groups, speak more than languages, and have unique immigration experiences and pathways to and through the U. In addition to ethnic, language, and immigration diversity, the AAPI community is heterogeneous as it pertains to educational attainment, poverty status, generational status, household income, and socioeconomic class B. Nguyen et al. Although no official grouping of the different ethnicities exists, efforts have been made to group ethnicities based on geographic and cultural boundaries, for example, East Asian e.
See U. Census Bureau , Table 2, p. Southeast Asian e. Efforts to disaggregate educational data have revealed significant disparities in the educational outcomes and student experiences between these AAPI subgroups B. In addition, studies have found that student groups from the Pacific Islander and Southeast Asian subgroups, with low numbers, face different challenges of representation and support on campus, as compared to East Asian subgroups with higher representation B.
MSIs offer broad access to higher education for students who might otherwise have limited postsecondary opportunities, including underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, low-income students, first-generation-to-college students, adult learners, and other posttraditional 20 and nontraditional students.
MSI learners look very different from those for whom higher education was originally intended. This distinction cannot be overstated when considering the policies and practices—at the federal, state, and institutional levels—needed to support MSIs and MSI students. In this section, we provide. For more information on post-traditional learners, see Soares et al. Likewise, on average, HSIs have a large percentage of Hispanic students within the two- and four-year private and public institutions.
This fact is not lost on prospective undergraduate students, and in fact serves as an influential factor in college choice Box A review of the U. At four-year HSIs, Hispanics represent half. Of note, In comparison, White students represent the MSIs reflect another form of diversity in their student bodies: how students pursue college, in terms of enrollment intensity. According to a recent analysis by the American Council on Education Espinosa et al.
Although enrollment data for TCU students were unavailable in this report, data provided by AIHEC demonstrated that a substantial portion of enrolled students attend part time Table Given this pattern of enrollment, it is not surprising that a large number of students who enroll at MSIs, particularly two-year MSIs, are over the age of 25 see Figure for data. These students are often working and are balancing work, school, and family commitments.
See Box for a brief discussion on the importance of two-year institutions in higher education. The enrollment patterns and proportion of adult learners at MSIs are important to understand. Institutional policies and practices needed to serve a largely nontraditional student body are very different from those intended to serve students who enroll right after high school and stay full time through graduation.
Serving nontraditional students requires institutions to be more nimble and innovative in their educational approach Arbelo-Marrero and Milacci ; Soares et.
It further requires, as discussed in a later section in this chapter, that performance measures take into account the many dimensions of student success for nontraditional and post-traditional learners.
Although not always representative of their student body, full-time faculty members at MSIs are much more diverse than those at non-MSIs Figure
Will the coronavirus make online education go viral?
The growth of non-public funding streams and the extension of Degree Awarding Powers to alternative providers might encourage such shifts. We suggested the conventional Private Limited Company is not in principle the only alternative to the publicly funded HE Institution. One consistent national policy driver in strategies of English public management reform has been support for third sector orientated providers which may have had effects in HE. Our empirical conclusions about present organisational change patterns in the sector are, however, decidedly mixed. There is substantial but rather conventional M and A activity between publicly funded HE providers which does not add to organisational variety. A small cluster of for profits has entered the English HE market, alongside another small cluster of non for profits. One site showed evidence of a slight move to a professional partnership form, mixed with private equity.

The sudden closure of university campuses across China and elsewhere has necessitated the virtual delivery of vast numbers of courses. And while there have been inevitable teething problems, observers are wondering whether the future might just have become the present. Joyce Lau reports. When Times Higher Education surveyed leaders of prominent global universities in , the respondents — from 45 countries across six continents — were emphatic on one point: online higher education would never match the real thing. Chinese social media is currently filled with anecdotes of such frustrations with online education. Then again, such teething problems are only to be expected given the breakneck speed at which universities in China have been forced to move all of their teaching online — precisely to preserve the health of their students — in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak that has paralysed the region. All students in mainland China and Hong Kong — from kindergarteners to doctoral candidates — were asked to stay home and pursue their education online after the Lunar New Year break ended in late January.
This paper examines patterns of higher education financing around the world, the student enrolment in government funded private institutions. In Chile (59 While endowments have traditionally been a large source of funding, market of funding from the William and Flora Hewitt Foundation and the Bill and Melinda.
Completing College – National – 2017
What steps can colleges and universities take to more effectively support their students? The first in a series examining innovative and effective strategies for improving student success, this introductory article examines current challenges to persistence and completion, and the demographic trends likely to further compound the issues in the coming years. It lays out a framework for building institutions designed to promote student success outcomes. It also surveys some of the most promising innovations across all dimensions of the student experience—from the classroom and support services to campus operations and partnerships with the broader community.
MOOCs are a widely researched development in distance education ,  first introduced in ,  that emerged as a popular mode of learning in Early MOOCs cMOOCs often emphasized open-access features, such as open licensing of content, structure and learning goals, to promote the reuse and remixing of resources. Before the Digital Age , distance learning appeared in the form of correspondence courses in the s—s and later radio and television broadcast of courses and early forms of e-learning.
Universities and colleges are expected to impart marketable skills that prepare students for the dynamic world of work. To date, students continue to graduate and employers continue to hire new talent, and this has been the norm for centuries now. In the last two years, however, the skills gap has been widening at an alarming rate SHRM, , amidst the tightening career demands.

How Does Personalized Learning Affect Student Achievement?
Ему была видна задняя дверца: как это принято в Севилье, она оставалась открытой - экономичный способ кондиционирования. Все внимание Беккера сосредоточилось на открытой двери, и он забыл о жгучей боли в ногах. Задние колеса уже остались за спиной - огромные, доходящие ему до плеч скаты, вращающиеся все быстрее и быстрее.
Мистер Клушар, очень важно, чтобы вы вспомнили это. - Внезапно Беккер понял, что говорит чересчур громко. Люди на соседних койках приподнялись и внимательно наблюдали за происходящим. В дальнем конце палаты появилась медсестра и быстро направилась к .
Похоже, кто-то очень нами недоволен, директор. Это шантаж. Больше всего похоже на требование выкупа. Слова Сьюзан прозвучали слабым, едва уловимым шепотом: - Это… Энсей Танкадо. Джабба повернулся и изумленно посмотрел на .
Bill Gates, Jr., in a highly publicized address before the National Education During the first 3 years of the initiative, there were also important developments in the high-tech industry, expressed the expectation that the foundation would try higher-quality work in ELA classes than students in traditional high schools.

Со своего места Сьюзан могла видеть всю комнату, а также сквозь стекло одностороннего обзора ТРАНСТЕКСТ, возвышавшийся в самом центре шифровалки. Сьюзан посмотрела на часы. Она ждет уже целый час. Очевидно, Анонимная рассылка Америки не слишком торопится пересылать почту Северной Дакоты. Сьюзан тяжело вздохнула. Несмотря на все попытки забыть утренний разговор с Дэвидом, он никак не выходил у нее из головы. Она понимала, что говорила с ним слишком сурово, и молила Бога, чтобы в Испании у него все прошло хорошо.
