AASCU’s President On How Higher Ed Can Address Equity Gaps

Episode 11

American Association of State Colleges and Universities President Dr. Mildred García sits down with EAB’s David Attis to talk about what institutions can do to address equity gaps.

Dr. García shares some of the challenges she faced as the first in her family to attend college. She also shares stories about educators within the campus community who set high standards for her then taught her how to work to meet those standards. Dr. García and Dr. Attis also discuss their biggest concerns for the fall and their frustration with the rise of the media narrative that higher ed is not worth the price.

Dr. Mildred García

"What can we do better, what can we do differently, what is the way we can think differently?"

Dr. Mildred García

"One of the greatest frustrations I hear from higher education leaders over the last decade has been the rise of a certain media narrative that higher education is ‘not worth the price.'"

David Attis
Dr. Mildred García

"The disinvestment in public higher education has been horrific."
