Why do some students think about college as the natural next step in their education, while others do not consider college as an available option? What are the various factors that influence college access and what types of resources and programming contribute to the inclusion and retention of first generation and underserved students in college and universities. This course will build upon the outreach efforts of the Critical Studies of Childhood, Youth and Learning program (CYL) by acquainting students interested in education studies, youth mentoring & leadership, and youth development with the research on college access and retention. Students will explore the history of higher education with regard to educational access as well as the significance of early college awareness for students from underserved communities. Enrolled students will be required to participate in a semester-long community-based, college awareness project.
