The project is also expected to offer advices to sound plans helping these economically disadvantaged students to adapt to the university once they are enrolled. The project interviewed staff of three other top research universities who were pioneers in promoting the enrollment of economically disadvantaged students. The project also used data offered by NCCU administration to analyze the performance of economically disadvantaged students at NCCU in the past as well as the performance of students who were the bottom fifth in their college entrance examinations and see if it is practical to lower the admission criteria for the economically disadvantaged. Based on the research findings, this project proposes that NCCU should uphold the core value that the excellence of a top public university should care about social justice and increasing the enrollment of economically disadvantaged would promote campus diversity. Furthermore, by lowering the admission standards in order to enroll more economically disadvantaged is a practical strategy. However, the strategy should be complemented with the method of holistic review and plans to assist students before and after their enrollment academically and economically.
