By comparison, enrollment at all universities and colleges nearly doubled during this time. Therefore, we subsume retention metrics by incorporating graduation rates in the SMI.

The simple fact is that to solve the economic mobility problem in the United States, the spiraling growth of sticker tuition must be reversed.

That is, if the SMI formula had been calculated devoid of tuition to establish a ranking and then real tuition numbers were added back into the formula, each school's position would have changed, on average, by places. Despite its widespread promotion as a marker for inclusiveness, Pell grant participation is, in fact, a very poor indicator of campus economic diversity.
