New Report: #RealCollege During the Pandemic

Posted by The Hope Center on June 30, 2020

Our #RealCollege During the Pandemic report details basic needs insecurity for 38K+ students at 54 institutions due to #COVID19 and offers actionable suggestions for institutions and policymakers.

The COVID19 pandemic struck American higher education in March 2020. Campuses closed, students lost jobs, and emergency resources fell far short of their needs. This new report examines the impact on the security of students’ basic needs, as well as multiple indicators of their well-being, including employment, academic engagement, and mental health. The data come from an electronic survey completed by 38,602 students attending 54 colleges and universities in 26 states. This includes 39 two-year colleges and 15 four-year colleges and universities. California institutions are not included in this report; this summer we will issue a special analysis of students attending the 114 California Community Colleges.
