I have been working with several Stanford faculty and students to better understand the nature, operations, effectiveness, context, policy, politics, and organizational behavior of all froms of broad access postseondary -from beauty colleges to minimally selective universities. We have commissioned papers from scholars and practitioners all over the USA. Below are some links to our progress to date with Gates Foundation funds.

Papers that we have commissioned from the project are headed to an edited volume. We have some modest funds to support a
convening of the authors sometime in 2012 to revise the papers and integrate the volume.
