Generational Jumps? How HSIs Promote Upward Mobility

Short Description: 

Published in February 2024 by the Rutgers Center for Minority Serving Institutions.

This report builds on prior research by examining (1) intergenerational income mobility for students at Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) and (2) assessing variation in mobility measures across HSIs. This report goes further than previous work by examining a greater variety of income brackets when assessing students’ mobility. Doing so uncovers the extent to which HSIs can help mitigate inequity and stratification by fostering intergenerational income mobility.
