Reimagining students’ aspirations and futures through college and career opportunities

CPRS—Center for Postsecondary Readiness and Success: Founded in 2018, the Center for Postsecondary Readiness and Success concentrates its research, professional development opportunities, and knowledge dissemination on improving the postsecondary opportunities for students who are historically disenfranchised and underrepresented on college campuses. We foster a collaborative approach to research in which we work alongside our community partners and school practitioners (e.g., school counselors, teachers, administrators) to increase the rate of college and career readiness. Practitioners and policymakers can then use findings from our research to effect change.
