Pathways to Postsecondary Success, a project of UC/ACCORD, is a five-year set of mixed-methods studies focused on maximizing opportunities for low-income youth to earn higher education credentials. With support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the project aims to advance research on poverty; produce useful tools that improve educational opportunities and inform the U.S. policy agenda on the relationship between poverty and education. The project includes national analyses, a survey of California youth, case studies of youth and their interactions with various educational institutions, and the development of a monitoring tool, or indicators, to track educational opportunities for low-income youth. Together, these studies will assess differences in postsecondary trajectories of various populations of low-income youth, document the supports and barriers to postsecondary success inside and outside school walls, and monitor the opportunities for postsecondary attainment.
