Degrees with Less Debt: Effective Higher Education Strategies for Underrepresented Student Populations

Describes a study commissioned by St. Louis Graduates, a collaborative network whose mission is to increase degree completion for low-income students, first-generation students, and students of color from St. Louis. The report addresses two key questions: 1) which institutions are doing the best in supporting low-income, first-generation students and students of color through college completion with low debt? and 2) what strategies are these institutions using to facilitate these results?
