Pell Institute report
State of College Opportunity in Ohio, 2005
The State of College Opportunity in Ohio, 2005, was prepared by the Council for Opportunity in Education and the Pell Institute — with support from the GE Foundation — as part of the Council’s broader State Initiative. The structure of this report mirrors the Indicators of Opportunity in Higher Education report, which tracks the progress of our nation’s commitment to making post-secondary opportunity a reality for low-income students.
In this report, we have posed several key questions about the ability of low-income students to access and succeed in post-secondary education in Ohio. In seeking answers to these questions, we tried to identify any gaps that exist for low-income students at crucial transition points from high school to college and beyond. The recommendations offered are intended to bolster ongoing efforts in the state to close these gaps, while recognizing that more attention and resources are needed to address this important issue in Ohio.
If you are a student support services professional, thank you. You are an unsung hero for all the good that you do, and surely you know by now that COE has your back.
Through strategic collaborations, we work to strengthen quality, opportunity and access to education for all American students — the next generation of global leaders.
