"This volume of New Directions for Institutional Research synthesizes the literature on college choice and then highlights college enrollment patterns and decisions for specific subpopulations, including lower socio-economic status, at-risk, first-time, and minority students. The chapters not only describe disparity among subpopulations but also highlight the factors, programs, and assistance that tend to improve and encourage college enrollment. The authors suggest viable programs and intervention strategies to promote access. This volume is relevant to campus administrators, institutional researchers, enrollment management professionals, and others with concern for access and opportunity to higher education."--BOOK JACKET.
