Minority Serving Institutions

This project investigates college access and postsecondary outcomes for Black and Hispanic students at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs).  The current papers utilize the state longitudinal student-level database in Texas.  The next phase of the project will be led through the CPS, focusing on expanding the scope of the work to include MSIs in Florida, engaging additional finding agencies, and examining returns on investment.
