Description


An NPR Favorite Book of the Year Winner of the Critics' Choice Book Award, American Educational Studies Association Winner of the Mirra Komarovsky Book Award Winner of the CEP-Mildred Garcia Award for Exemplary Scholarship Winner of the Thomas J. Wilson Memorial Prize "Eye-opening...Brings home the pain and reality of on-campus poverty and puts the blame squarely on elite institutions." -Washington Post "Jack's investigation redirects attention from the matter of access to the matter of inclusion...His book challenges universities to support the diversity they indulge in advertising." -New Yorker "The lesson is plain-simply admitting low-income students is just the start of a university's obligations. Once they're on campus, colleges must show them that they are full-fledged citizen." -David Kirp, American Prospect "This book should be studied closely by anyone interested in improving diversity and inclusion in higher education and provides a moving call to action for us all." -Raj Chetty, Harvard University The Ivy League looks different than it used to. College presidents and deans of admission have opened their doors-and their coffers-to support a more diverse student body. But is it enough just to admit these students? In this bracing expose, Anthony Jack shows that many students' struggles continue long after they've settled in their dorms. Admission, they quickly learn, is not the same as acceptance. This powerfully argued book documents how university policies and campus culture can exacerbate preexisting inequalities and reveals why some students are harder hit than others.
