EES conducts research and facilitates learning with the goal of advancing equity in higher education.
Our work aims to reverse the erroneous narratives that underpin inequitable higher education policies. We harness the experiences of those closest to the work to generate the right questions, while centering the voices of students and communities most impacted by inequitable educational opportunities to find solutions that work for them.
Areas of Work
Inclusive and Transformational Higher Education Reform
An inclusive change process is the linchpin for achieving equitable solutions for college level and state-level reforms . EES studies “the how'' of transformational change in higher education.
Designing Credentials for Equitable Economic Mobility
Credentials at community colleges and universities alike should result in economic mobility for all students regardless of students’ racial or economic background. EES is currently studying the features of non-degree credentials that create equitable economic mobility by gathering the perspective of program graduates, employers and college personnel.
College Math Reform
Improved and equitable outcomes in college math can transform students’ college and career trajectories. EES studies instructional and structural changes that can improve outcomes in college math, and ways to scale effective strategies.
