Dr. Anne-Marie Nuñez, associate professor in the College of Education and Human Development’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, will present her research at a panel in the United States Capitol Visitors Center in Washington, D.C. from 9 a.m. to noon on Sept. 2.
“Do Higher Ed Accountability Proposals Narrow Opportunity for Minority Students and Minority-Serving Institutions? What New Research Tells Us” is a higher education research and policy briefing open to congressional staff, policymakers, advocates, researchers, and the press. The event is hosted by the Civil Rights Project at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
Nuñez’s presentation, “How the Shortcomings of a Postsecondary Ratings System Could Lead to Shortchanging Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) and their Outcomes,” based on a policy paper co-authored by Awilda Rodriguez at the University of Michigan, will explore accountability policies in higher education and their influence on minority students and HSIs. She is one of seven presenters from universities around the United States.
