For city leaders endeavoring to achieve greater numbers of college graduates in their city, those people who have some college or began study but did not complete their degree represent an enormous opportunity.
In order to develop strategies to get pre-graduates to complete a four-year degree, however, their special needs must be better understood.
Through ethnographic research on pre-graduates and interviews with experts, opportunities for increasing access to college and college attainment were identified. From this research ideation salons were held to develop 101 new ideas for reclaiming a nation of pre-graduates.
Process & Personas contains the full background and detailed ethnographic personas, while Ideas captures the entire list of 101 ideas and visually displays the top 5.
This work was made possible by a grant from Lumina Foundation for Education.
