This longitudinal study focuses on a new generation. Members of the high school class of 2002 were born in the years 1983 and 1984. In order to situate their lives in historical context, it is helpful to think back to some of the major events in the lives of these young Illinois citizens. This analysis of the cohort of 2002 provides leaders of Illinois institutions of higher education with information about the gendered patterns of enrollment and successful completion at educational institutions of different types. If evidence shows that the gender disparities in education can be addressed, it is possible that other disparities may follow suit and the state can point to a more equitable system for all learners. The authors display data by fall, spring, and summer semesters to capture the annual rhythms of educational participation. (Contains 15 figures and 1 table.)
