Achieving the Dream’s Community College Women Succeed advisory group, comprising leaders from 12 organizations working to increase racial and economic equity for community college students and their familieshas released its first research agenda designed to better understand student parents, increase equitable student success, and provide data to help colleges.  

The research agenda aims to inform and inspire further research on what the advisory group has determined are the most crucial data points for understanding student parents in community colleges. These include gathering more data on who these students are, labor market outcomes, recruitment and enrollment practices, student success strategies, financing education, understanding the experiences of children and community college women, and experiences during the pandemic. 

This research can inform the design of a higher education system capable of closing equity gaps, setting all students up for success.
