In with the New: Rating Higher Ed by Economic Mobility

Mar 7, 2022

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

Are schools living up to the promise of economic mobility? Experts take an in-depth look at a report by panelist Michael Itzkowitz of Third Way, which assessed economic mobility among higher education institutions using the innovative Economic Mobility Index (EMI). The analysis is designed to give policymakers, researchers, and consumers a better way to assess which colleges are delivering on the promise of economic mobility for low- and moderate-income students—and which ones are falling short.
