Lunchtime Talk: Community Colleges—Opening or Closing Doors for Students?

Joanna Karet is a new member of the research faculty at the Center for Alaska Education Policy Research, which was established as part of ISER in 2010. She will talk about her findings on whether attending two-year community colleges encourages or discourages students from going on to get four-year or advanced degrees. Existing qualitative research has indicated that attending community colleges causes many students to lower their goals. Dr. Karet has developed a quantitative model to predict educational achievement for students who begin their college education at two-year or four-year institutions.

When: Thursday, February 14, 12 to 1
