Harvard University


December 2008
to fund a four-year quantitative research grant to conduct a series of studies focused on how institutional practices and polices impact college enrollment and completion. Harvard University will use state and university administrative datasets from 5 states to examine three main objectives: (1) understand the underserved students in postsecondary schooling systems; (2) unearth the barriers that students face in accessing and succeeding in higher education; and (3) highlight the possible solutions and policy implications to improve collegiate outcomes. The project will produce a series of outputs, including journal articles, and less-technical pieces that target policy and practitioner audiences to build evidence of effective tools and practices and to fuel advocacy efforts to build awareness and engage partners in this work.
