The College Board announced last week that it is creating a new center aimed at making connections between research, policy, and practice related to higher education.

Among other activities, the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center will target issues related to college preparation and access. The center will put special emphasis on underserved populations—particularly low-income students, students of color, and first-generation college students, the College Board said in a statement released last week.

The center is receiving support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Education is the foundation for achieving a better quality of life, economic prosperity, and greater opportunity, Gaston Caperton, the College Boards president and a former West Virginia governor, said in the news release. Now more than ever, practical, research-based solutions are needed to improve our education system and enable millions more students to graduate from college prepared for 21st-century success.
