The Attitudes of Asian Americans Toward Affirmative Action<br><h4>Asian Americans are increasingly a factor in the political life of the United States, which makes it important to gain an accurate rendering of their position on key social issues that impact the nation.</h4> Asian Americans And The Benefits Of Campus Diversity: What The Research Says<br><h4>A key argument for affirmative action is that college students benefit from engagement in a racially diverse student body.</h4> Do Asian Americans Benefit From Race-Blind College Admissions Policies?<br><h4>Opponents of affirmative action in the Fisher Supreme Court case claim that race-conscious admissions policies discriminate against Asian American applicants and impose a “higher bar” in college admissions than for other students.</h4> Asian American And Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institutions: Areas Of Growth, Innovation, And Collaboration<br><h4>Our system of higher education must realize a fundamentally different approach to teaching and learning because of our nation’s rapidly changing demography.</h4>

Welcome to the National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education (CARE)

The National Commission on Asian American and Pacific Islander Research in Education (CARE), consisting of a national commission, research advisory group, and research team at New York University, aims to engage realistic and actionable discussions about the mobility and educational opportunities for Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) and how distinctions of race, ethnicity, language, and other factors play out in the day-to-day operations of America’s education system. Our goal is to provide much needed and timely research on key issues and trends related to access and participation of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in higher education.
