This study responds to a critical need for research that provides an evidentiary basis for policy, law, and social change. The premise for the current study is to provide new perspectives for understanding problems in California that policy and practices can target to improve educational opportunities and outcomes in the state. Whereas previous studies have been interested in the factors associated with attending either the University of California as a whole or a specific campus within the UC system, this study takes one step further by examining the extent to which both the UC system and individual UC campuses enroll first-time freshman from high schools that vary by racial composition.
