The Center for Research on Higher Education Outcomes (CRHEO) advances scholarship on how college affects students through innovative research at the nexus of education systems, the economy, and our society.

CRHEO's mission focuses on increasing knowledge and understandings of the effects of postsecondary experiences and institutional conditions on a range of student outcomes. Through a diverse portfolio of funded research and evaluation, CRHEO's team of principal investigators, faculty partners, research staff, affiliates, and graduate students strive to achieve this mission. At the center of CRHEO's work are multi-institutional, data-driven studies focused on the measurement and prediction of higher education outcomes.

Home to professional research staff, faculty partners, affiliates, and graduate students, CRHEO is a community of scholars dedicated to better understanding the ways students develop and conceive of their development in college, as well as conditions that contribute to student success.

CRHEO is located within the Steinhardt School’s Department of Administration, Leadership, and Technology and Higher Education Program.
