  • Samuel D Museus
In recent decades, much national discourse in higher education has focused on the need to more effectively retain and graduate racially, ethnically, and socioeconomically diverse college students. Yet, despite the significant investment that has been made to increase rates of success in higher education, many students who enroll in college never complete a postsecondary credential. In addition, significant disparities in persistence and gradu­ation rates along racial and ethnic lines linger.

The Culturally Engaging Campus Environments (CECE) Project is designed to create tools that provide a common evi­dence-based vision regarding the types of environments that allow diverse student popula­tions to thrive in college. The CECE Project also utilizes research to transform campuses to cultivate such environments and achieve greater equity.
