Civil Rights and Federal Higher Education offers a renewed vision for higher education policy making, presenting an incisive analysis of the connections between educational politics and educational inequality. With a view toward the future, the editors assert that the thoughtful application of evidence-based solutions to complex policy problems can help establish a more just and equitable system of higher education.


A thoughtful volume that describes how decades of federal policy and politics have calcified racial inequity in our higher education system—and the work that lies ahead to make it fair and accessible to all. — Sameer Gadkaree, president and CEO, The Institute for College Access and Success
