Mouganie, Pierre; Canaan, Serena; Fischer, Stefanie; Schnorr, Geoffrey C. – W. E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, 2022
Academic support services such as coaching and mentoring programs have shown the most promise, but only when they are implemented in a very proactive manner--when they provide students with personalized follow-up and attention. Unfortunately, these programs are often expensive, making them hard to implement or scale at a regional or national…

Kofoed, Michael S. – W. E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research, 2022
A concern in higher education policy is that students are taking longer to graduate. One possible reason for this observation is an increase in off-campus labor market participation among college students. Financial aid may play a role in the labor/study choice of college students--as college becomes more affordable, students my substitute away…
