The Effects of Socioeconomic Status,
Institutional Selectivity, Major, and Major-Declaration-Process on Engineering
Students’ Post-Graduation Plans (Sheri
Sheppard, PI; Funded by Sloan Foundation). An analysis of national data on the academic
pathways of undergraduate engineering students. The overarching goal of this
project is to identify variables tied to engineering students’ postgraduation plans.
Evaluation of the National
College Advising Corps (NCAC) (Funded by NCAC). A
multi-method, comprehensive evaluation of the impact of NCAC advisers on
student aspirations and college enrollment and success outcomes.
Social Network Analysis of the
Impact of Interactional Diversity on College Students (pursuing funding). This
project seeks to understand how the social organization of students affects the
racial diversity and closeness of student relations, and the impact of both on
outcomes. In particular, we are
interested in relational structures such as insulated subcultures, close-knit cliques,
and chains of relations on campus.
