University of Chicago Urban Education Institute

Research shows the vast majority of high school students across America aspire to earn a college degree, yet fewer than one in three will succeed. In light of this, a cross-sector cadre of education stakeholders are banding together to put student attainment data to work. Learn how the University of Chicago’s To & Through Project provides education stakeholders with the research, data, and professional learning they need to close the gap between students’ college aspirations and attainment.
