The value of a college education is essential to individual opportunity and national competitiveness. Today’s national dialogue reflects this in many ways, from questions about how much college is needed, to whether college is affordable or not, to differences in who goes to college.

In this context, setting goals for college attainment helps to focus public dialogue, identify barriers to completion and attainment, and target resources to specific challenges. Yet, an analysis of educational attainment goals raises questions about who is served? What educational institutions get resources? And how is success measured based on the different beneficiaries?

Educational Testing Service (ETS), American Council on Education (ACE) and Diverse: Issues in Higher Education are excited to address these questions and more in a forum titled: “Why the Nation Needs to Do College Attainment Better.” We invite you to join us and hear perspectives from a diverse group of higher education thought leaders.
