Center for Student Success Research

Promoting access and success in higher education for underrepresented and understudied student populations through research, evaluation, and organizational assessment.

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.
