A Major Decision? The Consequences of College Course-Taking

Grant Year: 2019

Rodney Andrews, Scott Imberman, Michael Lovenheim, and Kevin Stange will examine how colleges can best serve as engines of upward mobility for students from low-income backgrounds. They will make use of a large student-level dataset in Texas that records primary and secondary school performance; college attendance, course-taking, and performance; and employment and earnings of students. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports, papers, and briefings for public officials.
