February 26, 2015

Over the past several decades, Washington University in St. Louis has evolved from a locally oriented institution to one of national prominence.  In its rise, however, Washington University has become, by one measure, the least economically diverse top college in the United States. Just 6 percent of its undergraduates received a Pell Grant last year, federal data show.  Washington University administrators say they want to improve the institution’s record. Officials announced late last year a plan to increase the share of students who receive Pell Grants to 13 percent by 2020, including by spending $25-million more each year on aid to low-income students, on top of the roughly $100-million the university now provides.

Writing Bad Code?
