New Report: #RealCollege 2021: Basic Needs Insecurity during the Ongoing Pandemic

Posted by The Hope Center on April 13, 2021

Entering the fall 2020 term, higher education was reeling from the coronavirus pandemic. Enrollment was down—particularly among students most at risk of basic needs insecurity; fewer students had completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid; and college retention rates had dropped. Students and faculty were stressed and anxious. And by the end of the term, more than 267,000 Americans died.

This report examines the pandemic’s impact on the #RealCollege students who were able to continue their education in this challenging environment. We analyze results from the 2020 #RealCollege Survey, completed by more than 195,000 students attending 202 colleges and universities in 42 states.
