Assistant Professor, Educational Administration
Lauren Schudde, PhD



Lauren Schudde's research examines which practices and policies are most effective for improving educational attainment, with an emphasis on what works where, for whom, and in which contexts. A few examples of her work in this regard include: an examination of the factors contributing to the bachelor’s degree attainment gap among black and white four-year college entrants, a study of the impact of tying academic standards to need-based financial aid on the college outcomes of community college students, and an investigation of variation in the effects of engaging with faculty, staff, and peers across family income. In these projects, she examine how policies, practices, and campus environments can produce barriers to student success, particularly among subgroups who are underrepresented in postsecondary education.
