A number of reforms have been put on the table in recent years to make the college admissions process more equitable. But is focusing on one or two areas—say, test-optional admissions—enough to dramatically transform the process? Angel Pérez, CEO of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and Terri Taylor of Lumina Foundation visit the podcast to talk about how broad-based, systemic change and a deep examination of how the barriers arose is the only path to true change. The hosts open the show by talking about ACE’s new partnership with the Carnegie Foundation to develop the collaboration on the next incarnation of the Carnegie Classifications, and the latest higher education policy developments in Washington, DC.
