Student loan forgiveness, debt, rising merit aid, and other college-affordability issues have received a lot of recent attention, but what does it all mean for broadening access to higher education — and ensuring successful outcomes for students once they get there? We look at what higher-ed institutions and policymakers can do to open the doors and put more students on the path to college and a degree.
