Soon she’s moving herself and her center to Rutgers University in New Jersey. In this country, there are over 700 2 and 4-year colleges and universities designated as Minority Serving Institutions which educate 26% of ALL college students and over 40% of college students of color. Almost 80% of their students receive Pell grants, and these schools include Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic Serving Institutions, Tribal Colleges and Universities, and Asian American and Native Pacific Islander Serving Institutions. Professor Marybeth Gasman has helped institutionalize and elevate the work of these critical American spaces, their staff, faculty, and students as the director of the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions at the University of Pennsylvania and has learned a lot along the way. ***SUPPORT COLLEGE SIGNING DAY ON MAY 1st!*** www.bettermakeroom.com/collegesigningday FURTHER READING/VIEWING/LISTENING Five things no one will tell you about why colleges don’t hire more faculty of color (Hechinger Report) Why don’t colleges have more minority faculty?
