We envision these seven rights as promisesâ€”not a guaranteeâ€”that the Massachusetts public higher education institutions make to all students. However, to fulfill promises to all students, the system must center efforts on racially minoritized studentsâ€”the students who are not being served well. Through doing so, the bar of achievement and excellence will be raised for all.
