Vanessa Coca Presents on Creating a College-Going Culture

On December 17, 2013, Vanessa Coca gave the featured presentation to representatives from local high schools, higher education institutions and community-based organizations as part of a forum on creating a college-going culture, organized by Graduate NYC!

The presentation focused on the gap between college aspirations and attainment for minority and low-income students across the nation, and highlighted some specific obstacles that may prevent these students from applying to, enrolling in, and completing college. The presentation was based on ongoing studies by the Research Alliance aimed at understanding college-readiness, as well as Ms. Coca’s previous work for the Consortium on Chicago School Research.
