    Abstract

    Colleges and universities are facing challenges based on our evolving society—including a shifting of U.S. demographics towards racial and ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education, increasing financial challenges, and changing public expectations and understanding of the relevance of secondary education. Integrating and supporting the success of diverse individuals is facilitated by evidence-based, high-impact practices that focus on building communities of support to advance institutional priorities. Specific approaches based on facilitating progress through structured mentoring, institutional culture assessment and evaluation, and institutional transformation to support the growth and success of a broad range of individuals are highlighted.
