As the pandemic wreaked economic havoc and quickly threw the higher education plans of students into a tailspin, many were left trying to make their way through the enrollment process, which in some cases was further complicated by the sudden changes to family finances. Jaime Ramirez-Mendoza and Tiffany Jones of The Education Trust were attuned to this dynamic and in an issue brief provided a racial equity analysis of the professional judgment (PJ) process, which earned them NASFAA’s 2021 Robert P. Huff Golden Quill Award.
