Research shows the transition from undergrad to graduate school is particularly difficult for underrepresented students, especially those who start out at a community college. Some issues are related to socio-economic status (college costs a lot!) while others are institutional/structural (what the heck is an “articulation agreement”). This workshop is meant to help students understand the “pipeline” from community college to undergrad to graduate school and highlight the areas along the pipeline where students tend to get stuck and/or even drop out along the way. The goal is to identify barriers and provide students with tools and info to get beyond these barriers regardless of standing.
