Despite increased efforts to improve graduation and persistence rates for men of color in college, these outcomes have not significantly improved. Researchers and practitioners have developed very promising models to reverse these trends, yet it remains unclear whether the models work in practice or whether they can be altered to produce better outcomes.
On Monday, April 27, at 4 pm (ET), MDRC and the Institute for Higher Education Policy are hosting a free webinar calling on the higher education community to build stronger evidence of effective college success strategies for men of color by:
- Making the case for more rigorous research designs in support of men of color success initiatives
- Introducing a framework for developing competitive proposals for such programs
- Inviting partnerships forFirst in the World and other federal grant competitions to further this work
Please join MDRC and the Institute for Higher Education Policy for a rich discussion about how to leverage existing and emerging research to develop integrated strategies to improve the rate of innovation and success in education for men of color.
This one-hour webinar will be moderated by Lashawn Richburg-Hayes, Director of the Young Adult and Postsecondary Education Policy Area at MDRC, and Michelle Asha Cooper, President of the Institute for Higher Education Policy.
