The term "education desert" refers to the regional phenomenon in which a given area either has no access to higher education or access to only a single community college or broad-access institution. Much like a food desert, access to education is limited based on geography. Education deserts perpetuate a cycle of inequity; without access to higher education, residents of rural areas are denied a number of professional and economic opportunities simply because of their place of residence.
