The Guide is intended to serve as a resource to help university administrators develop robust support systems to accelerate sharing of research data. It provides advice to universities concerning actions they can take, as well as the infrastructure and support that may be required to improve access to research data on their respective campuses. It also offers examples of how institutions are approaching specific challenges to providing public access to research data and results.

The Big Ten Academic Alliance (BTAA) Cluster is examining student course data and the practices and policies affecting success rates in entry-level courses, with an emphasis on closing achievement gaps for historically underserved student populations. The following learning memo highlights the cluster’s work to examine how an analysis of DFW rates reveals equity gaps to better understand how these grade markers correlate with student retention and graduation outcomes.

COVID-19 has exacerbated systemic and institutional barriers to equity that higher education institutions are working hard to address by seeking solutions to support students struggling to afford college or facing mounting debt burdens. To support its members in this effort, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) has undertaken a research project funded by the TIAA Institute to identify and strengthen the evidence for innovative financial aid strategies designed to improve affordability and reduce student debt for a significant number of students. Teams from nine institutions were selected as Affordability Fellows (hereafter “Fellows”) to investigate best practices and promising strategies for improving financial aid effectiveness and equity in the longer term.

This report describes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on food insecurity, as experienced by students at a small set of urban universities from March through December 2020. Although not meant to be a comprehensive description of the transition from on-campus to remote learning nor of the direct impact of COVID-19 on university operations, this project was designed to provide a snapshot of what food insecurity is, as well as what it looks like on urban campuses and among their stakeholders, using qualitative methods.

Researchers and educators now perform 21st century science and education in facilities constructed in the 1950s and 1960s. These buildings and facilities –which are at the foundation of our nation’s food, fuel, and fiber security and at the starting point of food and agricultural innovations – have not received capital infrastructure investment sufficient to avoid leaky roofs or to update air circulation and HVAC systems. The findings of this study reinforce an urgent call for federal investment in agricultural research infrastructure at our nation’s colleges and schools of agriculture. As we describe in this study, federal investment would drive both short-term and long-term economic growth. We anticipate that 200,000 new local jobs will result from investment for capital infrastructure to address the deferred maintenance at colleges and schools agriculture.

In these challenging times, the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities has had a year it can be proud of. We were able to pivot to quickly meet the needs of our members, delivering weekly presidents calls, regular provost and member calls, and an innovative summer meeting that allowed us to explore different ways to respond to the multiple challenges we face.
