Leading With Equity in Dual Enrollment

January 15, 2021

Dual enrollment is a powerful tool for securing the transition from high school to college. However, although dual enrollment has the biggest impact on students underrepresented in higher education, those students do not have equitable access to this powerful opportunity. Recently, the Community College Research Center and Aspen Institute documented what nine colleges are doing to close that equity gap in The Dual Enrollment Playbook: A Guide to Equitable Acceleration for Students.

In the discussion, Achieving the Dream President and CEO Dr. Karen A. Stout was joined by college leaders who have prioritized equity in their dual enrollment programs. The authors of The Dual Enrollment Playbook also discussed the leadership strategies that increase equity in dual enrollment.
