About Us

The mission of the Center for Research on College to Workforce Transitions (CCWT) is to conduct and support research, critical policy analysis, and public dialogue on student experiences with the transition from college to the workforce in order to inform policies, programs, and practices that promote academic and career success for all learners.

o CCWT is currently engaged in three distinct yet inter-related areas of inquiry in service of our mission and principles: (1) students’ experiences with college internships and the impact of these programs on their economic, vocational, and psychosocial outcomes; (2) Community Based Participatory Action Research on students’ experiences with institutional, cultural, and structural forces that influence their transitions to the workforce; and, (3) educational and outreach activities that build community and disseminate actionable knowledge to policymakers, practitioners, researchers and students regarding college-workforce topics.

64% of students who did not take an internship had desired to do so but could not due to scheduling conflicts with work, insufficient pay, and lack of placements in their disciplines.
