Reported by Education Dive, new research from Ithaka S&R shows that low-income students who attend liberal arts-focused colleges have a higher chance of becoming higher-income adults.
The takeaway? With so much talk and trends toward certificate programs and immediate ROI education, this study should at least help add some nuance in the discussion – to help fight for liberal arts experiences even in our work-first educational models.
May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
