La Follette School of Public Affairs: Seminar Series

Can Need-Based Aid Increase College Persistence among Low-Income University Students?

Evidence from a Randomized Trial

Sara Goldrick-Rab

Assistant Professor

School of Education/Sociology

Doug Harris

Associate Professor

Public Affairs/Educational Policy

The two University of Wisconsin professors will discuss their latest research on higher education. Academic areas of research for Sara Goldrick-Rab include access and persistence in higher education; complex postsecondary pathways; and educational policy and sociology of education. The work of Doug Harris examines the equity and efficiency of K-12 and higher education policies. He is author of the book Value-Added Measures of Educator Performance (Harvard Education Press, forthcoming in 2011). The book reflects his larger interest in value-added as a source of performance measures and accountability and as a method for examining the effects of policies and programs on student achievement.
