Subject: Casting Call for IHEP Documentary Film--Redefining Access for the
21st Century Student

Dear Colleague,

Do you know any students who have faced or are facing challenges in
accessing higher education? For example, students who have had or are
experiencing challenges with going through the college admission process,
finding the right college, or paying for it all? If so, we need your help!

The Institute for Higher Education Policy (IHEP) is creating a documentary
film titled “Redefining Access for the 21st Century Student.” This film
seeks to tell the real life story of individuals—their lives, their
challenges, and their triumphs—in order to maintain focus on the critical
barriers that remain for far too many students in gaining access to an
affordable, quality college education that will improve their life chances.
If we are to meet our nation’s college attainment goals, ensuring access to
and success in higher education for diverse populations is more important
than ever.

As part of our research, we would like to talk to students about some of
the barriers to access they have faced. From this group of students, we
plan to select four individuals to highlight in the film. The categories of
students we are seeking include the following:

• First-generation students

• Low-income/working poor students

• Culturally diverse students

• Adult students displaced by the workforce and are reentering college •
Military veterans • Students who have transferred or are in the process of
transferring from a two-year to a four-year institution

If you have one or more students who come to mind, or can refer us to
someone who might, please feel free to send me a quick email at
[log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> or call me at 202-861-8243<
tel:202-861-8243 <202-861-8243>>.  We know your schedule, like ours, is
probably full so I can follow up with a phone call in the next couple of
weeks to discuss any individuals or leads you might be able to provide.

We look forward to hearing from you!
