On June 26th, The Hamilton Project at Brookings will host a forum on the importance of expanding college opportunity for more Americans. Harvard College’s William Fitzsimmons and The Brookings Institution’s Grover J. “Russ” Whitehurst are among the distinguished experts joining a roundtable discussion focusing on a proposal for targeting and reaching low-income, high-achieving students by Caroline Hoxby of Stanford University and Sarah Turner of the University of Virginia. In a second panel discussion, higher education leaders—including The College Board’s David Coleman and Syracuse University’s Nancy Cantor—will focus more broadly on the role of higher education in American mobility.
