Citation: Koen, Jennifer, et al. Promoting Fairness in Access to Higher Education in an Unequal Society: The Student Equity and Talent Management Unit. Rep. N.p.: n.p., 2012. Print.
Program: Urban and Higher Education

Quality education is advanced as key to South Africa’s progression towards increased employment opportunities, improved standards of living for the majority, and greater social cohesion and equality among citizens. Furthermore, there is growing recognition that higher education plays a central role in a country’s socio-economic development and advancement to global competitiveness. However, owing to the inequities entrenched by the system of apartheid, many of South Africa’s citizens still do not have the opportunity to access higher levels of education and the consequent improved employment prospects. There is a significant need to develop the “capabilities of the historically disadvantaged to take advantage of the opportunities that democracy, openness and the economy afford” (NPC, 2011b, p.412).

May 2013 Fast Forward - A Case Study of Two Community College Programs Designed to Accelerate Students Through Developmental Math Grantee Publication
Fast Forward - A Case Study of Two Community College Programs Designed to Accelerate Students Through Developmental Math
Citation: Fong, Kelley, and Mary G. Visher. Fast Forward - A Case Study of Two Community College Programs Designed to Accelerate Students Through Developmental Math. May. MDRC, 2013.
Program: Urban and Higher Education

Community colleges face significant challenges retaining their diverse population of students and helping them progress to graduation. A key barrier is the developmental (or remedial) coursework in reading, writing, and/or mathematics to which a majority of entering students are referred. These lengthy sequences — often required for college-level work — can be daunting, and many students leave college before completing their developmental requirements, let alone attaining a credential. Developmental math, in particular, is a substantial stumbling block to college completion.

To support colleges as they address these challenges, Lumina Foundation for Education launched a national initiative, Achieving the Dream, in 2004. Today, Achieving the Dream is a nonprofit reform network working with nearly 200 colleges nationwide. Many Achieving the Dream colleges and others are experimenting with ways to reform developmental education. Gaining momentum are "acceleration" strategies, which modify the structure and/or pedagogy of developmental math courses to help students move more quickly toward college-level coursework. This report presents a case study of acceleration programs at two Achieving the Dream colleges: Broward College in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Tarrant County College in Fort Worth, Texas.

Faculty at Broward developed a model called "Math Redesign" that compresses the traditional sixteen-week developmental math courses into eight weeks, so that students can complete two levels of developmental math in a single semester. The model also includes collaborative problem-solving during class and computer-assisted instruction outside of class. At Tarrant County, faculty divided each developmental math course into three modules, in a program called "ModMath." Through a more fine-grained placement process, students may be able to skip content that they have already mastered. During class, students work at their own pace on computers using an instructional software package, while the instructor works with students individually. The self-paced nature of ModMath potentially allows students to complete more than three modules per semester.

Feb 2013 The US and the Gulf States: Uncertain Partners in a Changing Region Grantee Publication
Citation: LeBaron, Richard. The United States and the Gulf States: Uncertain Partners in a Changing Region. Rep. Washington, DC: Atlantic Council, 2013. Print
Program: International Peace and Security

The relationship between the U.S. and the Persian Gulf states as they face democratic transitions in the Arab world as well as security challenges in the Gulf, is addressed in a new issue brief published by Carnegie Corporation grantee the Rafik Hariri Center for the Middle East.

Senior Fellow Richard LeBaron evaluates the reaction in the Gulf states differently to the rapid political change in the region. The looming threat of Iran attaining nuclear weapons has brought greater urgency to efforts to enhance regional security, and is complicated by distrust in the Gulf over the long-term durability of the US commitment to Gulf security.

LeBaron also proposes an agenda as the basis for the United States and the Gulf states to reexamine and renew their partnership in the context of a changing region.

Subprogram: Immigrant Civic Integration

A detailed analysis of the current immigration enforcement system that was set in motion with passage of the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) in 1986. The report traces the evolution of the system, particularly in the post-9/11 era, in terms of budgets, personnel, enforcement actions and technology. It examines individual programs and results, ranging from Secure Communities and 287(g) to deportations, detention, post-9/11 visa screening and new federal databases, explaining how they have intersected — in some ways by deliberate design, in others by happenstance — to create a complex, interconnected, cross-agency system.

Citation: Theroux, Karen. Beyond Boundaries: A Promising New Model for Security and Global Development. Rep. New York: Carnegie Corporation of New York, 2013. Print.
Program: International Peace and Security
Subprogram: Nuclear Security

In 2007, a team of international security experts and researchers at the Henry L. Stimson Center launched an initiative to build an effective model for sustainable nonproliferation of biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons. The project represented an exciting and innovative way of thinking about security: a “dual-use” approach that operated at the nexus of the security and development communities. The team’s ingenuity paid off. After less than six years, the Stimson Center is phasing out its involvement in the successful program, which will now be government funded. This Results shows how a novel idea, supported with modest grants from Carnegie Corporation, went on to secure millions in support from international sources, achieving real-world policy wins.

Research management in African universities: from awareness raising to developing structures
Citation:  Kirkland, John, and Patrice Ajai-Ajagbe. Research Management in African Universities: From Awareness Raising to Developing Structures. Rep. London: Association of Commonwealth Universities, 2013. Print.
Author: John Kirkland and Patrice Ajai-Ajagbe
Program: Higher Education and Libraries in Africa

Research management (RM)─any action that a university can take to improve the effectiveness of its researchers but which is not part of the research process itself─can act as a catalyst for the more efficient use of resources in the short term. In the longer term it can expand the resource pool by increasing access to and improving the management of external funding, thereby enhancing donor confidence in the ability of African universities to deliver. This report explores these and other key benefits of research management at  five African universities.

Citation: Kelly, Lorelei. Congress’ Wicked Problem: Seeking Knowledge Inside the Information Tsunami. Rep. Washington, DC: New America Foundation, 2012. Print.

The New America Foundation paper argues that the absence of basic knowledge management in our legislature is a critical weakness. Congress struggles to make policy on complex issues while it equally lacks the wherewithal to effectively compete on substance in today’s 24 hour news cycle. Congress is not so much venal and corrupt as it is incapacitated and obsolete. And, in its present state, it cannot serve the needs of American democracy in the 21st Century.

Program: Democracy and Civic Integration
Subprogram: Immigrant Civic Integration

Beyond imparting political and social rights, naturalization appears to confer economic gains for immigrants in the United States, with a wage premium of at least 5 percent – even after accounting for the fact that naturalized immigrants have higher levels of education, better language skills, and more work experience in the United States than noncitizens. More than 8 million legal immigrants in the United States are eligible to apply for citizenship but have not done so. Naturalization rates in the United States are lower than most other Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, the report notes.
