Learn About Economic Diversity at 3,000 Colleges Nationwide

11/22/2006:   Curious about how colleges compare when it comes to serving low-income youth, or how many students apply for financial aid, get Pell Grants, or take out Stafford loans? Answers to these questions are available at economicdiversity.org, a new online resource from the Institute for College Access and Success.

The site contains data for the 2000-2001 and 2003-004 academic years for about 1,000 community colleges and 600 public and 1,100 private four-year colleges and universities. The 128 data elements on the site provide a glimpse of the income distribution of students at individual colleges, as well as racial and ethnic diversity, student borrowing, applications for financial aid, graduation rates, and tuition levels.

A blog on the site provides information about updates to the site, issues and questions raised by the data, economic diversity in the news, and more.
