Staff and Senior Scholars at the Pell Institute for the Study of Opportunity in Higher Education regularly present at conferences and meetings throughout the United States and the world. This section provides selected presentations from Institute staff in downloadable formats.
On September 15, 2021, the Pell Institute presented at 40th Annual Conference hosted by the Council for Opportunity in Education. The Pell Institute was founded midway in COE’s history—when neither class nor parents’ education were the focus of many access and retention discussions. Those discussions have changed in recent years and first-generation status has now become an important data point in college opportunity discussions. Learn the history and role of the Pell Institute’s annual report, Indicators of Higher Education Equity in the United States, as well as the importance of researcher/practitioner partnerships in assuring a voice for low-income and first-generation students and educators in research and evaluation.
On February 20, 2015, the Pell Institute opened for the Council for Undergraduate Research (CUR) Dialogues 2015. The topic was how to widen the participation of low-income, first generation, and students with disabilities in the evidence based effective practice of contributory undergraduate research. CUR Dialogues is designed to bring faculty and administrators to the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area to interact with federal agency program officers and other grant funders.
On February 3, 2015, the Pell Institute held a meeting at the National Press Club to release their report Indicators of Higher Education Equity in the United States — 45 Year Trend Report. The report, published jointly by the Penn Alliance for Higher Education and Democracy (Penn AHEAD) of the University of Pennsylvania and the Pell Institute with support from the Travelers Foundation, draws on U.S. Census statistics and educational data to make the compelling and disturbing case that inequality in obtaining a college education has substantially grown in the past 45 years.
At the Council for Opportunity in Education's 26th Annual Conference (September 2007), The Pell Institute sponsored two strands, “Student Retention Strategies That Work” and “Research You Can Use.” All session titles are listed below, and include the presenters’ PowerPoint presentations, if available.
