New NACAC Committee Will Add Students to Discussion of Admissions Practices

"In January, NACAC released recommendations developed with the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators on eroding equity-related roadblocks in admissions," Higher Ed Dive reports.

"That report spanned multiple areas of enrollment and financial aid. One suggestion was the idea that colleges should involve students in their admissions work, said David Hawkins, NACAC’s chief education and policy officer.

The new ad hoc committee puts that recommendation into practice, Hawkins said. It will be composed of 15 admissions practitioners who are NACAC members, as well as 15 to 20 students, he said."
