|National Study of
College Experience (NSCE)
The NSCE is a collaborative study involving 10
academically selective colleges and universities for the
purpose of examining the racial and social class
dimensions of college admission and campus life.
Institutional data on all applicants for admission in
the fall of 1983, 1993, and 1997 were supplemented with
survey information on more than 9,000 students. Several
papers from this project have appeared, and the authors
have prepared a monograph on the subject. The NSCE
is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
