Community College Research Initiatives


The CCRI team conducts research and development to generate actionable knowledge to advance equity in the field of higher education. Our work focuses on studying the experiences of underserved student groups that use community colleges as their entry point to higher education and the role that institutions play in equitable student educational and employment outcomes. Our goal is to leverage this research to effect change in postsecondary education at all levels.


The Community College Research Initiatives (CCRI) team is committed to equitable college access, progression and transfer, degree completion, and employment in living-wage careers for all learners.
