Advanced Degrees


    86% of students desire to obtain an advanced degree


    Although college and career aspirations are high across almost all students, disparities exist in college degree attainment. Compared to 42% of White and 61% of Asian students, only 23% of AfricanAmerican and 15% of Latinx students aged 25-29 have attained a bachelor's degree or higher. Equitable student participation in advanced coursework is one way that gaps in college enrollment can be reduced. One study showed that most students (across all socioeconomic backgrounds) who will enroll in college have taken at least one college-level course in high school. Through the EOS process, we are able to define focus areas, professional development needs, and student support programming.
