Abstract:
One of the fundamental responsibilities of higher education systems is to provide open and equal opportunities for students to learn, succeed, and positively contribute to their local, national, and global societies. Although many institutions have made great strides to improve access, retention, and graduation rates for students from disadvantaged or marginalized groups, more needs to be done - particularly in the light of changing demographic patterns, linked to unprecedented shifts in migration and mobility around the world. Governments, employers and higher education institutions increasingly recognize the need to provide better opportunities for people from disadvantaged and historically marginalized groups to gain access and achieve success at the university level and expand the talent pool available for the changing needs of the local and global labor market.

This program continues Salzburg Global's partnership with Educational Testing Services and will build on the outcomes of our three-part series on Optimizing Talent: Closing Educational and Social Mobility Gaps (2010-2012). Organized in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania, it will engage leaders, policy makers, and researchers from a range of countries to explore the role that higher education systems can play in serving marginalized populations, identify opportunities for collaboration and examine specific policies and innovations that enable such systems to more effectively serve marginalized communities while improving the overall quality and effectiveness of higher education institutions.
