In the story on the Inside Higher Ed website, “The (Out-of) State University” on declining state support for public universities and increases in enrollments of out-of-state students, research by Assistant Professor Julie Posselt, Ozan Jaquette (PhD ’11) of the University of Arizona, and Bradley R. Curs of the University of Missouri was mentioned. The trio found that as non-resident student enrollment increases in public research universities, the shares of Pell Grant recipients and African-American, Latino, and Native American students decrease. These patterns are more pronounced in selective universities and in states with affirmative action bans, they found, and linked to non-resident students’ academic credentials and higher average incomes.
