About the Early College Research Center

The Early College Research Center at UNC Greensboro is intended to serve as a global hub for building knowledge about early college.  The Center’s mission is to conduct, synthesize, and disseminate research concerning topics related to early college. Translating research to practice is also a key goal of the Center.

The Center’s work builds on an extensive body of existing work including: 1) a 17-year longitudinal experimental study of the impact of North Carolina’s early college model; 2) evaluations of five efforts to implement early college strategies in comprehensive high schools in Colorado, Connecticut, Indiana, Michigan, North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas; and 3) an ongoing five-year project examining the impact of North Carolina’s dual enrollment program, a component of which is early college.
