Learning During Unsettled Times
from 12:00 PM to 02:00 PM
Professor Arum will present updated findings on students from the Social Science Research Council’s Collegiate Learning Assessment Longitudinal Project. The project follows several thousand students at 30 U.S. higher education institutions. The research focuses on disadvantaged groups of students, including students from racial/ethnic minority groups, less advantaged family backgrounds, non-English speaking homes, and racially segregated high schools. Results of earlier analysis of learning during the first two years of college in Academically Adrift will be extended by presentation of analysis of the complete four years of student longitudinal data (Fall 2005-Spring 2009) as well as focusing on how these students have subsequently fared post-graduation during the recent U.S. economic crisis (Spring 2010 and Spring 2011 survey results).
