Out and Up: Socioeconomic Mobility at the College-to-Work Transition

Grant Year: 2020


Judith Scott-Clayton and Jordan Matsudaira will direct the research program of a policy lab on socioeconomic mobility at the Community College Research Center. The initiative will examine how best to ensure that public and private investments in college lead to increases in economic opportunity and social mobility. In partnership with the City University of New York, they will explore what factors and programs enable students to succeed in the transition to employment and to earn more in the labor market over time. The lab’s findings will be presented in a variety of reports, policy briefs, and presentations.
