Subject: June 2, 2020: New research publications

Good afternoon everyone,

We have two new research reports to share that are now published on the policy research team website:

Guided Pathways

"Research Report 20-3: The economic and social reasons behind a two-year degree and green shoots that offer evidence for how to graduate more students with one"

For questions please contact David Prince at dprince at sbctc.edu<mailto:dprince at sbctc.edu>.

Financial aid

"Research Report 20-2: Financial aid key program participants and outcomes"

Travis Dulany and I collaborated on this paper, which was developed to better understand the financial aid landscape for students in our system, in preparation for the new Washington College Grant investments and program changes. All of the analysis in the paper comes from a new financial aid dashboard that Travis developed and will be discussing in the webinar on Thursday, June 4th at 9:00 (invite sent to all staff on 5/27) . We are excited about the opportunity to share the dashboard and demonstrate the kinds of research questions it can answer through the new paper. Hope you all can make it!

Any questions please feel free to let me know.
