Colleges and universities continue to press forward in their pursuit of diverse, inclusive learning environments where all students can benefit. In doing so, institutional leaders—especially financial aid officials—must balance using financial aid as a tool to expand opportunity and a range of legal, policy, political, and practical considerations in the awarding of financial aid. This Access and Diversity Collaborative (ADC) session will address major federal nondiscrimination laws that govern the awarding of financial aid and scholarships when factors like race, ethnicity, and gender are considered; and will offer practical strategies, action steps, and examples that align with current federal laws.
