ICI and EdPsy Launch New Postsecondary Project

On March 1, the Institute on Community Integration (ICI) and the Department of Educational Psychology launched "Making the Connection: Engaging and Retaining Young Adults in Postsecondary Education," a two-year research project funded by a $727,237 grant from the Institute for Education Sciences (IES). The project will study adaptation of Check & Connect – a K-12 school engagement intervention developed at ICI – to community college settings for use with students ages 18-30 who are at risk of leaving school.
