Examples of research studies

The Office of Institutional Research has engaged in a number of formal research studies using SERU data. 

One new text inspired by social class data captured by SERU was recently published. The latest release, Welcoming Blue-Collar Scholars Into Ivory Towers, explores two critical questions: How do we increase college participation among low-income and working-class students, and how do we create environments that will retain them and help them succeed? 

A few additional examples of these presentations, reports, or analyses are highlighted below.

Forthcoming publications using SERU data will appear in the following journals:

SERU data has also been highlighted at the following local, national, and international conferences:
