College Equity and Inclusion

Northwestern University is leading the charge to make world-class education accessible to all students. The university over five years has boosted financial aid for undergraduate students by 55 percent to approximately $160 million in 2016-17. Within two years, 20 percent of the entering class is expected to be eligible for federal Pell grants, which are available to students from low-income families.

Looking to improve access beyond Northwestern and throughout the country, our faculty are also conducting path-breaking research and contributing to progressive policies that promote academic inclusion and equity at all educational levels.
