Scholars in the Center for Student Success Research at UMass Amherst conduct research, evaluation, and organizational assessments that promote access and success in higher education for underrepresented and understudied student populations, including students with disabilities, rural students, and international students.
Employing diverse methodologies and theoretical perspectives, our social scientists produce research identifying institutional and societal factors that limit or promote equitable pathways into and through higher education. Based on the findings and recommendations of the center, institutions, policymakers, and other change agents develop policies and practices that promote equity and improve outcomes for the populations they serve.
