“For way too long, and still too often, elite higher ed in this county is about the reproduction of privilege, more than it has been about the creation of opportunity." - @UCIrvine Chancellor Howard Gillman (At an event put on by @UCIovptl and @CollegeNET about #SocialMobiity) pic.twitter.com/kO73rove2z— Ryan Foland #SMMW18 (@ryanfoland) February 14, 2018
