New Hunt Higher Ed Issue Brief: Advancing Equity Through the Use of Disaggregated Data

June 1, 2022

The Hunt Institute has released the third and final brief of the three-part Attainment for All: Equity in Postsecondary Pathways series. This brief brings the discussion on equity full circle by examining the use of disaggregated data to narrow equity gaps in postsecondary education. 

Disaggregated student data allows institutions to see where specific inequalities exist more clearly, the magnitude of those inequalities, and a baseline against which to measure any initiatives.

In case you missed it, the first brief explored the idea of embedding equity in postsecondary attainment, identified barriers to achieving equity, and included examples of states’ work to ensure equity in all aspects of postsecondary attainment. The second brief examined the importance of wraparound services that provide equitable support to students.

This series builds upon the momentum of the a first series of briefs released from Fall 2019 to Spring 2020, Attainment for All: Postsecondary Pathways, and further explores the intersection between equity and efforts to raise postsecondary attainment rates.

With the information in these briefs, the next generation of state attainment goals can be more attuned to the specific racial equity gaps that exist, as well as the specific degrees and credentials that are needed for a state’s economy.
