Roadmaps to Success Beyond the Classroom
The Center works to identify and measure the skills needed to be successful in college and careers, determine pathways for students to be ready, track progress along the pathway, and evaluate effective ways to keep students on track.
Current Research Project
Diversity and Access in Higher Education
We are working on methods to support equity in college admissions and diversity on college campuses, so that more disadvantaged students have access to higher education. We are developing indices that admissions officers can use to identify not only those applicants who have faced adversity, but also those who have demonstrated extraordinary academic achievement in light of their circumstances. Through this research we hope to open new pathways to higher education for students who have traditionally faced social, economic, and institutional barriers.
