CTL Lecture Series: Access Without Support is Not Opportunity, by Vincent Tinto 

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 | Campus Center Theater  | 4 - 6 p.m.
Register» | Organizer: Angela Briel and Presenter: Vincent Tinto, Distinguished University Professor Emeritus, Syracuse University

While the gap in access to higher education between high and low income students has diminished over the past several decades, the gap in the completion of four-year degrees has not. That this is the case reflects a range of issues not the least of which is the fact that too many low-income students enter higher education without the academic and social resources they need to succeed. Therefore while the recent push to increase access to higher education among low-income youth is welcomed, it will do little to change their rates of completion unless institutions take seriously the need to provide students the academic and social support they need to translate the opportunity access provides into success in college. Professor Tinto explores what this requires of institutions and the sorts of actions they must take to ensure that more of their low-income students complete their college degrees.
