The College Board

The College Board is known primarily for their SAT and Advanced Placement tests, which play critical roles in the college admissions process, both for students and admissions officers across the country. The College Board, however, does also have an Advocacy & Policy Center that actively researches key issues of college access and success. Their annual reports regarding trends in college costs and financial aid are key tools of the higher education beat.

The College Board funds a robust policy and advocacy center that heavily emphasized the concerns of students of color. Particularly notable has been its “Young Men of Color Initiative.”
