Report Intro/Brief:
“Turning the Tide: Inspiring Concern for Others and the Common Good through College Admissions, represents the first time that a broad coalition of colleges and universities have joined forces in a unified effort calling for widespread change in the college admissions process. The report includes concrete recommendations to reshape the college admissions process and promote greater ethical engagement among aspiring students, reduce excessive achievement pressure, and level the playing field for economically disadvantaged students. It is the first step in a two-year campaign that seeks to substantially reshape the existing college admissions process.

The report includes concrete recommendations in three core areas:

  • Promoting more meaningful contributions to others, community service and engagement with the public good.
  • Assessing students’ ethical engagement and contributions to others in ways that reflect varying types of family and community contributions across race, culture and class.
  • Redefining achievement in ways that both level the playing field for economically diverse students and reduce excessive achievement pressure.”
