National College Admissions SymposiumJoin us Friday, March 27, for a national, research-based symposium hosted by the Buros Center at The University of Nebraska–Lincoln. We will bring together experts from across the country to explore potential new models for college admission including standardized tests, the value of increasing student diversity, and the role financial aid could play in optimizing admissions goals. We believe these topics will provoke important conversations, and this is your opportunity to be a part of those discussions.
