Broh Consulting Services, LLC provides strategic guidance for colleges and universities to comply with government regulations while remaining sensitive to the many demands for information about under-represented minorities. Institutional researchers, data systems personnel, human resource officers, registrars, and others have varying responsibilities that require coordination and compromise across an institution.
The Department of Education Guidance about Data on Race and Ethnicity has policy implications at the national level beyond the institutional collection of information. The data will be used to determine if applications, enrollment, financial aid, and graduation rates are increasing or declining for under-represented minority students. In the short run, colleges and universities will report to government agencies and the public about their progress, or lack thereof, with government supported programs that are directed at under-represented minorities and low income students.
