Write an analytic essay in response to the Provost’s request. Making use of academic literature, answer the following questions:
1. State the specific topic for the essay; describe issues of equity and social mobility related to this topic and the constituencies for whom these issues are most salient.
2. Evaluate key factors that affect equity in your area of focus, integrating evidence about demographic, political, and economic trends to support your argument. Include factors that contribute to perpetuating inequality as well as those that promote a more equitable system.
3. Propose a campus-level, state-level, or federal-level policy change related to your selected topic that you believe would move institutions, like MAHC, towards a more equitable system as it relates to your area of focus. Be sure to clearly connect how the recommendation addresses the key factors you have identified. Be sure the recommendation is feasible given the constrained budgetary environment of most higher education institutions and state systems.
