The site – financially supported by the Cognizant Foundation – includes case studies and data that provide a starting point for understanding current equity gaps, identifying recent trends, and analyzing enrollment, persistence, and completion.

“As we enter our 30th year of service to educational institutions and students, supporting all learners has been a central theme for the NSC since inception,” said Rick Torres, president and CEO of the NSC. “At the Clearinghouse — a nonprofit created by and for the higher education community — we are invested in seeing that all learners reach their full potential. This new site builds on our actions to support all learners. The Clearinghouse has an obligation to collaborate with our partners to find better ways to use our data and tools. We are very appreciative of the Cognizant Foundation and all the advisors and creators of the DEI Data Lab to address inequities in education.”
