The Tennessee Postsecondary Evaluation and Analysis Research Lab (TN-PEARL): Building a Foundation for Actionable Research on Higher Education Policy in Tennessee

Grant Year: 2017

William Fox, Celeste Carruthers, and Carolyn Heinrich will direct the research agenda of a policy lab designed to assess the impact of a statewide initiative to increase the levels of education and skills of Tennessee residents. They will monitor the implementation and analyze the effects of Tennessee’s “Drive to 55,” a state initiative to increase the percentage of Tennesseans with a post-secondary credential to 55 percent of the population. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports, papers, and policy briefs.
