The nation's only translational research laboratory aimed at increasing equity in postsecondary education.
HARVESTING OPPORTUNITIES FOR POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION Directed by Sara Goldrick-Rab Participation in Wisconsin postsecondary education is growing but students from low‐income households, students of color, and students who are the first in their families to attend college are still being left behind. Ensuring that these students fulfill their potential requires finding new and effective ways to level the playing field, minimizing barriers to college completion by identifying replicable and sustainable interventions. The Wisconsin HOPE Lab is the nation’s first laboratory for translational research aimed at such, working to identify new problems and opportunities, develop appropriate interventions and evaluate them, and share knowledge with policymakers and practitioners in a timely manner.
