The data clearly show male students of color graduate from Arkansas colleges and universities at lower rates than other students. The story is clear: This is a systemic problem, and we can take action to ensure all students succeed.
Brad Cameron teamed up with Philander Smith College professor Dr. Joseph Jones to bring higher education leaders together to form the Postsecondary Policy Forum with grant funding and technical assistance from the Executives’ Alliance for Boys and Men of Color and the Lumina Foundation. Cameron and Dr. Jones facilitated a process to review what data show, explore opportunities for improvement, and generate recommendations to increase the number of students who earn degrees and certificates. They tell their story and share the Forum’s vision for the future in Postsecondary Policy Forum: The Central Arkansas Movement for Equity in Higher Education.
