New Research, Publications and Events on College-Work/Internship Issues
Research on college-work issues span a wide range of disciplines including sociology, labor economics, cultural anthropology, education, and the learning sciences. We’ve selected a few recent papers from the scholarly literature, reports from practitioners and researchers, and interesting news items as a sampling of current issues and evidence from this topic that is in the news virtually every day.
CCWT also recently completed a participatory action research (PAR) project on what the general public in Wisconsin thought about the purposes of higher education in the early 21st century. A new report on this project was just released. The PAR project team has also initiated a new project with a group of Hmong-American undergraduate students, which is exploring their experiences with college and its impact on their career goals.
