​​​Equity Progress

HECC data resources are intended to support the application of the HECC Equity Lens and inform ongoing policy and funding efforts to achieve Oregon’s equity and student success goals.​

NEW! Equity Briefs​

In January 2022, the HECC Office of Research and Data released a new series of research publications, Equity Briefs, providing an in-depth look at data on the challenges and successes of public college and university students of color. Each Equity Brief focuses on the challenges of success—from high sch​ool through college and into the workplace—and where progress in reducing gaps has or has not been made for each racial/ethnic group​​.

While disparities are pervasive at all levels of education for students of color, underserved students do not all have the same experiences. The briefs provide separate analyses for Asian American/Asian learners, Black/African American learners, Latino/a/x/Hispanic learners, Native American/Alaska Native learners, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander learners, and are intended as a call to action.

Other Equity Data Resources:

The Equity Briefs complement other equity-related data the HECC publishes, including data in the annual Statewide Higher Education Snapshots that highlight equity gaps in enrollment, affordability, and completion, and disaggregated data in the HECC Key Performance Metrics.
