OPR banner 1

The Office of Policy Research (OPR) aims to improve retention and graduation rates at CUNY through research, evaluation, and decision support. To this end, OPR pursues issues of relevance across the CUNY system, including postsecondary racial, income, and gender gaps in access and performance; the role of college in economic development and workforce training; the educational experiences and choices of immigrant students; college readiness and the high school to college "pipeline", and the inter-relationships of housing and education. And with Gates Foundation support, OPR is working with the New York City Department of Education (DOE) to build a shared, student-level, longitudinal, tracking data system that both institutions use to improve their understanding of college readiness and the high school to college transitions. read more >>
