The recent White House efforts to increase FAFSA completion, support young men of color, and encourage greater commitment to supporting underrepresented students have highlighted a national focus on access and success. As professionals, it is essential we have a robust understanding of all aspects of the field and are well poised to positively impact student achievement and improve outcomes. Understanding the issues affecting our students, organizations, and schools from multiple perspectives will help broaden our views, encourage us to incorporate new and innovative practices, and ensure students and families are on a successful path to college and beyond.
