What We Do

The Student Success Through Applied Research Lab also known as SSTAR Lab conducts original research and evaluation on issues related to college opportunity and student success. Across all of our work, we prioritize the practical side of research and promote ongoing improvement to better support current and future students.

Our Mission

Our mission is to produce and elevate research to reduce barriers, improve equity, and support student success in higher education. We do this through intentional partnerships with practitioners and policymakers in the field.
