Our Research

CARA conducts research on critical issues in the fields of higher education access and success. We use quantitative, qualitative, and participatory research approaches to elevate issues of educational justice in the communities where we work.

Our goals are to:

  • Build on the partnerships we have with educational institutions to conduct research that is grounded in practice,
  • Contribute generalizable knowledge about the social forces that create and perpetuate educational inequity,
  • Contribute to the field by producing research that moves researchers and practitioners towards solutions.
