Access and Equity: California Master Plan for Higher Education and Disadvantaged Student Success
Davis, Kevin P.
The California Master Plan for Higher Education sets a policy objective of equity through access to higher education. The California State University system is California's primary institution for providing the social mobility that accompanies a four-year college degree. The purpose of this study is to examine the education lifecycle outcomes for a cohort of first-time freshman applicants to Cal Poly Pomona College of Business Administration, determine to what degree equity goals are being served, and make recommendations for policy change where shortcomings are observed. Three appendices are included: (1) Data Extract--Included Fields; (2) List of Tier 1 Local Source Institutions; and (3) SPSS Output.
