The Steinhardt Institute for Higher Education Policy seeks to raise public awareness about the essential roles of colleges and universities in modern societies. The Institute supports research and sustained dialogue to enhance understanding of higher education as an institution that both reflects and influences social, cultural, racial, and economic difference. The Institute’s programs encourage collaborative relationships among scholars, institutional leaders and policy makers and are informed by the commitment to the ideal of the university as an institution that advances the public interest.
