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. We do this through a unique research-practice partnership with the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Division of Enrollment Management. We also do this through external partnerships with universities, governmental agencies, and other units on campus.
